We live in treacherous, deceitful days! This is true in culture today, BUT also in the church today! As followers of Jesus who are trying to live gospel lifestyles, we must be careful to test the message and messenger. We are not to be spiritually gullible! In 1 John 4:1-6, John gives two easy proofs for discerning whether a message is true or error. Furthermore, as John begins to unpack some nuances of the Holy Spirit's work in the Christian's life, he declares "greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world!" (1 John 4:4) The consequence of that truth is huge for believers today. We are not to live defeated, deceived lives! We are to live victorious, Spirit-filled lives in Christ. That is the Gospel purpose! Message preached on Sunday, May 22, 2016 by Pastor Joey at Parker Memorial's DeArmanville Campus.
