Have you ever had any moments in your life, moments in your faith, where maybe you’ve doubted your salvation? You’ve doubted whether or not you’re going to heaven when you die, whether there is life or death? Have you ever wanted a little extra assurance that you’re going to go to heaven when you die? That’s the first question.
And the second question is like it.
Are you overburdened and do you ever have moments in your life where you look at the world around you and you think to yourself, “Man, it is just too much! There’s just too much going on around me.” Does it feel like the world is just too much?
John talks about that in this passage.
In this sermon we will talk about overcoming the world and we will talk about assurance in our faith, assurance in our salvation.

The Word “Test” literally means to examine or prove. It’s literally this idea “to weigh.” We’re going to test it and know it to be true.
Did you know it’s all of our responsibility to know the Gospel is being preached? Not just the preacher.
We have to PROVE it and know our faith has some real reasons behind it. The Bible teaches us it’s our job to test it. To weigh it out.
Here’s why this is important. This world is inhabited by The Evil One. The Evil One is the Father of lies. That’s what Jesus says about the Evil One.

There are all kinds of words we can use to describe us. There are a lot of words that we THINK define us that are negative words. Undoubtedly, there are plenty of people who have allowed for these kinds of labels to be put on them. We are not the lump sum of the things that happen to us. We are not what other people have decided we are or aren’t. We are not what people have said about us over the years, the discouraging words, that is not who we are! That is not our identity!
Our identity is so far greater than any words or any labels that can be put on us because our identity does not come from people or the words of people. Our identity comes from Jesus Christ!

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!

“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!”

“I can’t tell you how many times people, when they get in that kind of a funk, they pull away from people who can help them; who can give them biblical counsel, they pull away from their best friends, they pull away from their spouses. The Bible says the Evil One is like a roaring lion, walking around, roaming around seeking home he may devour.
When we isolate we become easy pickens for the Evil One!”

When I say God can do impossible things, how does that sit with you? Do you believe God can and will provide? God has a way of showing God can do impossible things and He uses the womb to show he has power no one else has. He does it repeatedly in Scripture, God opening up wombs. Now He doesn’t always open up wombs. Sometimes that’s not in His Plan. But if He does open up a womb, it’s for a purpose. God opens wombs to show He can do impossible things. But the virgin birth stands alone in Scripture. There’s nothing else like it. It stands alone. God does impossible things!

For the next 20 years Samson is with God’s people. The Philistines are still in control, but they don’t want to mess with Samson. But they do what to find something out. What makes him strong.
Then the text says there’s this women of ill-repute and Samson decides he wants to go down and be her “friend.” The Philistines see this and they say, “Hmmmmmmm Samson’s in town and now we know how to get to him. Hey Delilah come over here! Delilah! You need to get close to Samson and find out what makes him so strong!”
