Of this I am Sure: certainties in a world of chaos

When I Know Christ

1 John1:1 - 2:2 (page 941)
“...I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able...” 2 Timothy 1:12

Three Certainties ...

You can be certain ... of Jesus

1 John 1:1, “We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning, whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life.”

1 Peter 1:16, “For we are not making up clever stories when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Of this I am sure: The Eternal Son was before history, and then entered into history and now continues to exist outside and beyond history.

Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

You can be certain ... in each other

1 John 1:3, “... so that you may have fellowship with us...”
Galatians 3:28, “There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and
female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Revelation 7:9-10, “After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands. And they were shouting with a great roar: “Salvation comes from our God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb!”

You can be certain ... for the world

1 John 2:2, “He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.”

We exist for the “not yet”.

Final Thought: Of this we can be sure: Jesus is Lord. Together we are His. We are his light in a dark world.
