What a Friend!

1 John 3 & 4

WHY would I want to be a Christian? (I John 3:1 & I John 4:7)

  • GOD IS _________________________.

“friend of tax-collectors and sinners” (Matthew 11:19)

Jesus’ crucifixion was God’s initial (foundational) expression of love toward us. I John 4:9-10

  • When we receive God’s love, it changes us.
  • If we love one another, God lives in us. I John 4:11-12

    The Holy Spirit is the ongoing expression of God’s desire to be with us. I John 4:13

My NEXT STEP with God this week:

  • Receive Jesus’ offer of adoption by trusting in His death for your forgiveness. (Consider writing out 1 John 4:9-10 on an index card & reading it aloud every day this week, receiving His offer by faith.)
  • Receive Jesus offer of friendship by telling Him you're interested and then pursuing Him as you would pursue a friend. (Consider writing out John 14:23, 1 John 3:1 or 4:13 on an index card, reading it aloud every day this week, and personally asking Jesus to walk with you that day as a friend would.)
  • As you receive God's personal love for you, watch love begin to flow more freely out of you and affecting your relationships in very positive ways.
