1 John 4 (2018.05.06 Sermon)

May 8th, 2018 | John Chandler

Chris Morton continues our Easter season readings with 1 John 4.

“God is not a mumbling trickster… If he wants us to know something, he will be both able and willing to communicate it to us plainly, just as long as we are open and prepared by our experience to hear and obey. This is exactly what takes place in the lives of biblical characters… We may be sure that ‘no prophecy every came by human will, but men and women moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God’ (2 Peter 1:21). With very little exception the form such inspiration took was nothing more than thoughts and perceptions of the distinctive character that these people had come though experience to recognize as the voice of God in their own souls.” Hearing God, Dallas Willard

“There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful, than that of a continual conversation with God; those only can comprehend it who practice and experience it.” Practicing the Presence of God, Brother Lawrence
