THIS or THAT Part 1 – Facts or FeelingsPlay Audio
For the next seven weeks, we will be looking at the letters of John which very strongly tell us that, for our lives, there are only two options: to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, or not. John reminds the Church to stick to the truth of the gospel, to the facts that he had witnessed, and to be aware of the consequences of our choice.
Our culture seems very focused on feelings as we are encouraged not to offend others. However, the reality of our lives, of who Christ is and why we need a savior, are issues far too important for us to care simply about feelings, because we are dealing with serious facts. So, this morning, we ask ourselves when it comes to the gospel, what must we choose: facts or feelings?
We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. (1 John 1:3 )
