THE FIRST EPISTLE OF JOHN
AM I A CHILD OF GOD BIBLE STUDY TRUTH
CHILD OF GOD BIBLE VERSE QUEST
We're back again,
and it's good to have you here for more Daily Bread. In this part of John's
letter, he talks more about sin, and what sounds pretty scary and confusing
at first, turns out to be valuable information for us in our journey of
Faith to walk in the light, and fight against the darkness of sin.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the
children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so
be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
1 John 5:2
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and
keep his commandments.
AM I A CHILD OF GOD BIBLE STUDY OF HOPE
CHILD OF GOD BIBLE VERSE MEANING
Consider the kind
of love the Father has blessed us with, that we should be called the sons of
God. Therefore, the world doesn't understand us, because it didn't
understand Him (Jesus, the Son of God). Beloved, right now, we are the sons
of God, and it isn't clear yet what we are to be, but we know that when
Jesus shall appear, we shall be like Him, because we will see Him as He is.
And every man who has this hope in Him, purifies himself, even as Jesus is
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
get that part about us becoming like Jesus when He appears? I'm gonna
ask you to hold on to your emotions cuz you ain't read nothing yet ...
sin, also violates the law, because sin is the violation of the law. And you
understand that Jesus was born, made flesh, revealed to us, to take away our
sins, and in Him there is no sin at all. Whoever abides (remains) in Him,
doesn't sin, and whoever sins, has not seen Him, or known Him.
let no man deceive you: he that does righteousness is righteous, even as
Jesus is righteous. He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil
sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested,
that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever is born of God does
not commit sin; because His child abides in Him, and he cannot sin, because
he is born of God.
AM I A CHILD OF GOD BIBLE STUDY FACTS
CHILD OF GOD BIBLE VERSE EXPLAINED
Now wait just a minute here, you may be saying to
yourself. Just a couple of chapters ago, John said that if you say you have
no sin, you've deceived yourself, you don't have TRUTH in you. You also make
God a liar and His word isn't in you. Now he's saying that if you sin,
you're a child of the devil. Those are some pretty extreme extremes!
John isn't trying to contradict himself and confuse us all, he's just
stating the facts actually. Let's look at these things separately. It's
true, that we all sin. To say that we don't, well, is to deny that you're
human. Yes, even when you're reborn you sin. In fact, after you're reborn,
you may think you sin more than you used to, but that's just because
your new self is aware of all the sins that it wasn't conscious of before.
(The devil loves making sin seem so normal.)
Now, let's look at
the other side of the coin that John is showing us. He that commits sin is
of the devil. Well, it certainly isn't of your own preference, that you sin.
Something plants the seed that grows into sin. You don't purpose in your
heart, saying, I want to sin, even though you are aware that what
you're going to do is a sin. In fact, you probably hate yourself
once you do it. And if you're leading a Christian life, each and every day,
the devil is slapping opportunities to sin under your nose left and right.
It's his job. And sometimes we transgress. We all do. We sin.
HOW AM I A CHILD OF GOD BIBLE STUDY
WHY AM I A CHILD OF GOD BIBLE VERSE ANSWER
But the child of
God ... that reborn part of you, isn't the culprit of that. That godly
child is the one that agrees with John, and that child remains with his
Father, and his Father with him. So when John says,
He that commits sin is of the devil,
he is saying that the source of sin is the devil.
And we can all agree. You probably look back on some of your sins and shake
your head in disbelief that you could ever imagine doing such things. It's
shameful and ugly and embarrassing and you wish you owned a magic eraser big
enough to make even the slightest hint of it disappear. Do you think you're
the source of those deeds? Certainly not. Yet you did them. And that's why
Jesus died for you. And it will happen again. And He will forgive you,
again. Two important things to remember. God goes after the source of sin,
not the repentant sinner. And secondly, don't ever find yourself using "the
devil made me do it" as an excuse for your sin. Be strong when the devil
entices you. You have to become more clever - more crafty, than he. Jesus
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye
therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
the good fight, and walking the walk.
Let's continue now
with John's letter.
AM I A CHILD OF GOD BIBLE STUDY QUESTION
CHILD OF GOD BIBLE VERSE BLESSING
This is how you can tell who are the children of God and
the children of the devil: Whoever isn't righteous, is not of God, neither
is he who doesn't love his brother. This is the message that you heard from
the beginning, that we should love one another. Not like Cain, who was of
that wicked one, and killed his brother. And why did he kill him? Because
his own works were evil, and his brother's were righteous.
Don't be surprised
my brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death
to life, because we love the brethren. He who doesn't love his brother
remains in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that
no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. (A murderer in the sense that
he kills love and his own hope of eternal life.)
By this we
understand the love of God, because Jesus laid down His life for us, and we
ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has plenty, and
sees his brother in need, and doesn't have compassion on him, how can the
love of God live in him?
My little children, let's
not love in word (things written), or in talk, but in deed and in TRUTH. And
by this we know that we are of the TRUTH, and shall encourage our hearts
before Him. Because if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart,
and knows all things. Beloved, if our hearts don't condemn us, then we have
confidence toward God. And whatever we ask, we receive of Him, because we
keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
And this is His
commandment, That we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and
love one another, as He commanded us. And he that keeps His commandments
dwells in him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by
the Spirit which He has given us.
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
AM I A CHILD OF GOD BIBLE STUDY CONCLUSION
CHILD OF GOD BIBLE VERSE SUMMARY
Well, we've gotten
a good lesson from John about sin, but that's not all he's saying. Love is
more than just words, it's in your actions. It's in your generosity, and
your compassion. The qualities that Christ's love included should be the
kind that characterizes us, and when it is, we will be free to experience
confidence before God. Just the thought of that makes you take a deep breath
and feel good inside, doesn't it? You really can't learn enough about love,
and John will teach us more about the love of God in the next chapter, right
here at Daily Bread.
