In this 10th Corona Virus lock-down virtual Bible study, Pastor Kevin uses parallel passages in Galatians 4, John 15, James 4 and 1 Corinthians 15 to emphasize the amazing truths of today’s text in 1 John 3:1-3.
1 John 3:1-3 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. NKJV
From these passages, Pastor Kevin adds the following to the list of tests which typify a true Christian: Test 10 – Do you practice righteousness? Test 11 – Are you considered a spiritual misfit to the world?
