Key idea of 1 John 1:1-4 – We must life a life focused on Christ.
Three reasons to live a life focused on Christ:
I. Because in Christ we have revelation
As we get to know Christ, we get to know God; as we get to know God we grow in our trust of God.
II. Because in Christ we have relationship
A. Remember your faith is a relationship with Christ more than it is rules or rituals.
B. Realize that growing your faith is about deepening your relationship with Christ.
C. Recognize your relationship with Christ is an anchor against life’s storms.
III. Because in Christ we have rejoicing
Life in Christ:
- It means to have your spiritual thirst quenched (John 4:14)
- It means that we don’t have to fear death (John 6:40)
- It means to have light amidst the darkness of our world (John 8:12)
- It means to know the abundant life (John 10:10)
- It means heaven itself (John 11:25)
