1 John 5:13 “No Doubt About It” preached by Pastor Deane Plew on Sunday May 12, 2019

May 13, 2019

OBSERVATIONS:

  1) Unlike the disciples in the boat, we can live lives of settled trust.

  2) Many of our low moments, when traced back to their roots, come from self-reliance.

  3) When I have doubts, I will doubt my doubts NOT my trust in Christ.

May 7, 2019

OBSERVATIONS:

  1)  In an age of tolerance where intolerance is taboo, the Christian stands on the truths of God's Word.

  2)  Because I am secure in Christ I am freed from all that would seek to bring pessimism, anxiety, self-pity, and can live a life of confidence (Psalm 96).

1 John 5: 6-12, Part 1, “God’s Declaration Concerning Jesus” preached by Pastor Deane Plew on Sunday April 28, 2019

April 29, 2019

OBSERVATIONS:

  1)  The Baptism of Jesus and the Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension are historical facts that provide the basis for a person to place their trust in Jesus as their Savior and Lord.  Romans 10:17

  2)  The Holy Spirit births a person into God's family (Titus 3:5-6; Ephesians 2:5) and becomes the personnel Representative of God within the believer (Ephesians 1:13-14) giving direction primarily through God's Word and prayer.

  3)  A believer remains dormant in relation to proclaiming the gospel until that believer is empowered by God's Holy Spirit.  Acts 1:8

April 8, 2019

OBSERVATIONS:  

  1) The benchmark of love was Christ's life given: an undeserving death offered willingly to take God's wrath on our behalf.

  2) Whenever we think the command to love is too demanding, we should compare our love to Christ's.

April 1, 2019

OBSERVATIONS:  

  1)  Am I seeking God for the joy of Him alone, or just for the blessings that He gives?

  2)  The believer continues a life of repentance.

  3)  Remember serving follows immediately on the heals of genuine repentance.

April 1, 2019

OBSERVATIONS:  

  1)  Doubt is a sin.

  3)  Victory is assured!

1 John 4:7-21, Part 6, “Demonstrating Love” preached by Pastor Deane Plew on Sunday March 17, 2019

March 26, 2019

OBSERVATIONS
  1) My focus should be on the present with a view toward the future.
  2) Confidence before my Lord causes me to view every day as if it is the day: The day of Christ’s call to come home.
  3) The question is not do others love me, but am I loving God and others in true agape.
