Jesus came to die for you. Abide in that.
When we abide pressure seems to go away. Then you don’t bring that pressure in to your relationships. You don’t bring that pressure in to your work. Preachers don’t bring the pressure in to their congregation to do, do, do.
Jesus’ yoke is easy. It’s not about pressure.

God does not change.
The world changes. And it’s standards change. It’ll constantly change. It’ll constantly be trying to tell you and me what it means to be loving and kind and good. And we’re told if we would just change and be more like the world we wouldn’t have any problems any more.
Don’t believe it! It’s a lie.
You see the reality is Jesus came to save the world. And it’s our job to preach the gospel so the whole world knows there’s a God who loves them so much he put on flesh and He died for them!

“It’s not just the Abiding in the Word. It’s the Word of God Abiding in us!
What do I mean by that?
James 1:19 says, “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.”
Now if I think on that and I dwell on that…. but then when people talk to me I get angry. Well I’ve Abided in the word, but I’ve not allowed the Word of God to Abide in me!
If I never listen. If I’m quick to anger. I could be all about the Bible, but yet not allow the Bible to be alive in me.”

There was a song years ago. “They’ll know you are Christians by our love.” How do we KNOW that kind of love? How do we show it? We need to be asking ourselves, “How can I help someone in need?” If someone needs something from our house, ask us first please, but it’s ours to manage. God owns it, but we just manage it. God loves me unconditionally. So I must love others unconditionally as well. When we see everything belongs to God, then we realize it’s not ours to keep.

What does Fellowship With God look like?
The Apostle John shares with us a stark contrast between light and darkness. In God there is no darkness. It is impossible to live a perfect life, but He does demand of us to live a life that is in the light as He is in the light.
In this sermon we find out how important it is for us to live in Fellowship With God. It looks a whole lot like, intimacy. Deeply knowing who God is and what He desires.

Listen, people will do things out of their own selfish desires and they don’t even know it some times. You do, too! But we have the Word of God that we can take time in, and we can listen to people talk about Jesus. We can actually go to the Bible App and look at what Jesus said. And then we can say, “I’m not sure that’s quite right, what you’re saying, Preacher.”
Foundationally, go to the Bible and open it up! And John is trying to establish with us that he’s about to tell us is true! You can believe it! You can base your life on it!

“That is not who you are. That may be what you did. But that is not where you hang you hat.
You hang your hat on the person of Jesus Christ – who did it right, who did it for you, who lived out the law to perfection. When you were striving to do things right you were getting it wrong. Because it was never about you getting it right. It was never about your best efforts.
It was always about Jesus!”

“May your conversations be filled with salt. That means you’re bringing goodness to the conversation. Quit amping it up. Quit putting each other down. Quit tearing each other down. Quit belittling one another. That doesn’t encourage anybody. That doesn’t do anything for the relationship.
We’ve got to change the flavor of our conversation.”
