That you may have life

“The Assignment is Clear”

In this section we see what John the Baptist would later proclaim, and it is this, Jesus would increase while he himself decreased. In this chapter of John’s gospel we begin to see this come to pass with the defection of Andrew and Peter and others as they leave John to follow after the Lamb of God.

Abraham Was Justified by Faith…

“But to the one who does not work, but believes on him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited for righteousness. Just as David also speaks of the blessing of the person to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: Blessed are those whose lawless acts are forgiven and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the person the Lord will never charge with sin.”

Having the Mind of Christ

No matter what happens, live in a way that brings honor to the good news about Christ. Then I will know that you remain strong together in the one Spirit. I will know this if I come and see you or only hear about you. I will know that you work together as one person. I will know that you work to spread the teachings about the good news.
