The Gospel According To John (Cont.) ~ Week 4 ~ Dean Johnson ~ 04.11.21
Faith? It’s the reason.
- The TWO THEMES of this Gospel are and life – the TWO are LINKED.
- 1. Faith, life giving saving faith, starts with REASON
- Reason empowered by = life giving, saving Faith
- 2. Faith has to move beyond reason to TRUST
- Real, life-giving faith COMES WHEN you LOVE – NOT the things you can GET.
- LIFE GIVING, SAVING FAITH needs to be like gold.
1 Peter 1:7
- 3. Faith saves by it’s object and not its quality.
But it’s the of your faith, not the of your FAITH that saves you.
