Sunday Sermon: By This You Know that You Know God - 1 John 4:13–16
1 John 4:7–12 | Pastor Shaun Marksbury | Cornerstone Church of Savannah | http://cornerstonesavannah.org/ | 4 October, 2015
John says here that because Christians have a true connection to God, we can love as we ought, even in the midst of spiritual confusion. In fact, John will really spend the rest of this chapter on that thought. So, we begin today to examine our motivations for loving one another. Why should Christians love one another?
I. Love because you know the God of love (vv. 7–8)
II. Love because you know God’s demonstration of love (vv. 9–11)
III. Love because you know God better through love (v. 12)
