I John 2:28-3:10

 

    Children of God… I John 2:28-3:3

 

    Rescue from…                                            … 3:4-5

 

Ø  penalty of sin… past rescue  

Ø  power of sin… present & ongoing rescue

Ø  presence of sin… future rescue  

        

   Your truest self?... I John 3:6-10

 

            Interpretation challenge…

 

Ø   compare scripture with scripture:

 

                                  immediate context… I John 1:8-10

 

                                 Jesus…John 9:41, Luke 18:10-14, Mark 2:17,

 

Ø   consider background

 

                                  false teachers… I John 2:26; 3:7

 

 

Ø   “keeps on sinning”… a biblical distinction:

 

                                 “practice” & celebrate sin… Romans 1:32;Isaiah 5:20-22

                                           vs  

                                  struggle with sin… Romans 7:22-25

 

   Marks of a child of God…

 

Ø   Indwelling of the Spirit-“anointing” >> Christ within

 

                                  I John2:20, 27

                                  John14:16-17, 26; 16:13

 

Ø  Conviction of sin

 

                                  John16:8; Ephesians 4:30

 

Ø  Spiritual discipline

 

                                  Hebrews 12:11; 5-8
