SERMON NOTES

More Than Words

Bringing Life to Our Words

June 12, 2022

 

James 1:15-17

[15]Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
[16]Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. [17]Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

 

1 John 2:3-6

[3]We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. [4]Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. [5]But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: [6]Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.

John 13:15-17

[15]I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. [16]Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. [17]Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
