1st John Series • 10. Perceive – 1st John 3:10-24 - Part 1 In this message, Elder Bryce teaches us to perceive three things in our discipleship. First of all, we should understand that the world hates us because it hates righteousness. Secondly, We are to understand that God loves us because He acted upon that love and sent His Son to die for us. And lastly, in response to these two things, we should act out our love for God by actively loving others. When we do this, we perceive that we are of God. This justification by faith assures us in our own hearts that we are of God and can still live in liberty even though the whole world lies in wickedness. This message was preached on March 7, 2021.
