As the Scriptures say…40



God’s abiding in us

And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Saviour of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God (1 John 4:14-15)


And we have seen

  1. “We” refers to John and other apostles
  2. They actually saw and touched the Lord Jesus (1 John 1)
  3. More importantly, they understood that Jesus was the God walking on earth


And testify that the Father has sent the Son…

  1. This is the testimony that John, together with other apostles, bears
  2. The testimony is:
    1. Jesus is the Son of God
    2. Jesus is the Savior of the world
  3. This by the way is part of the Apostolic teaching


Whoever confesses

  1. Confession, oral or non-oral, is that which counts
  2. Confession is a privilege offered to anyone, regardless of any social standing one may have


That Jesus is the Son of God…

  1. Confession is not without content(s)
  2. The content herein is the Lord Jesus
    1. He is the Son of God
    2. He is the Saviour of the world
  3. One will truly confess that Jesus is none other than God in a human form


God abides in him and he in God

  1. How does one let God abide in him?
  2. A person lets God abide in her when she confesses that Jesus is just God as God the Father is God
  3. God’s abiding in us will guarantee our abiding in Him


Only by the help of the Spirit of God, can we rightly confess that Jesus is the Christ of God

(2 Cor.12:3). Then only, will we be able to have God’s abiding in us.
