Contrary to what a lot of people think, the Bible isn't a book of does and don't. It's a redemptive story of humanity showing how as we were given rules to live by, it was impossible for us to follow God. As such we were/are in need of someone to substitute his life for ours. Thankfully "we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous." 1John 2:1
Now are commands from God are not rules oriented but Love oriented. Love the Lord your God, and love your neighbor as yourself.
In this sermon Pastor Chris explores 1John 2:1-11 in the light of the commandments of Jesus.
Delivered to the Galena Bible Church Sunday December 29th, 2014.
