1st John Series • 2. The First Step to Finding Joy (1st John 1:4-2:2) John told his readers that his purpose for writing to them is so that they could live a joyful life even though the whole world lies in wickedness. In this message, Elder Bryce shows us that John faithfully tells us how Jesus designed for us to find that joy. In order to have a joyful walk with God from day to day, the first thing we must do is see sin as God sees sin. We must repent of it and walk more like Jesus. This message was preached at Mount Paran Primitive Baptist Church on January 10, 2021.
The main point that elect need to draw from this is that we should be careful to honor God in all things, and never forget that nothing can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. We do not need to live in fear of accidentally committing this sin. We have been made free.
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
I want to go to that uncomfortable place where, even though the world may mock me, I ignore the opinions of others and flee to the feet of my Savior.

Today’s message will further explore the “one faith” of Ephesians 4:5 as well as the other unifying factors of the church of Jesus Christ.
of God is to live and work together in harmony. This sometimes may be a struggle but it is those times of difficulty, when we show mercy to one another, that we are truly sharing the mercy and love of God that He has toward each of us.
The life of Jesus Christ is the standard of holiness. When we compare, or rather contrast, our life to that of Jesus we will see we fall very short and that we too need…Mercy.
The world and the devil may label you by your sin but your Heavenly Father does not. He sees you through the blood of Christ. God sees you as righteous.
