Memory Verse 1 John 3: 18 NCV My children, we should love people not only with words and talk, but by our actions and true caring.
Jesus Christ …the one who speaks to the Father in our defense …the Righteous One …the atoning sacrifice for our sins
Hebrews 12: 1 …let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…
Half True Clichés • No one is perfect. Everybody sins. • Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven. • I’m just a sinner, saved by grace.
Half True Clichés • I can’t help myself. It’s the way God made me. • Judge not lest you be judged. • All sins are equal. My big sin is no worse than your little sin.
John 13: 34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
1 John 2: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.
Truth to Take with You When you obey Christ, you testify that Christ has truly saved you. When you sin, your claim to be a Christian is called into question.
Challenge Get serious about walking as Jesus walked.
