“The Test ” Sermon Series – 20th January to 3rd March 2019

Winter Themes: Growth in Christ; day to day discipleship issues

A disciple’s life should be a living litmus test of their connection to the Father. In his first epistle, the apostle John walks through several aspects of the Christian life, revealing where the evidence lies for each. Do you know God? You can test it because the evidence is in your obedience. Do you truly love your neighbour? You can test it because the evidence is in your sacrifice. We don’t earn God’s forgiveness with our good deeds, but a transformed life should look just like that—transformed. Join us as we examine what areas of our lives need to change to be more obedient to Christ. You can say it with your mouth, but the evidence is in your actions.
