[SW157] 10/17/2014 message notes by Rev. Susan J. Wynn ©2014
Today, the Lord asks us to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith (2Corinthians 13:15)!
Text: John 5:24-29
— Good, to resurrection of life
— Evil, to resurrection of judgment
How are you walking? (Ephesians 5:1ff)
— In love (His love), verses 1-2?
— Did you give yourself up? It’s the only way to walk in His love!
— Or in evil (verses 3-6)?
— Do you walk as a child of the light (verse 8)?
— Are you living proof of what pleases God (verse 10)?
— Or are you sleep-walking? Wake up! (verse 14)
— Walk wise (v. 15)
— Redeem the time (v. 16)
— Be filled with the Spirit (v. 17-18). It is the Lord’s will!
If you do these things, you will not be subject to the judgment Jesus spoke of.
The fruit? You will subject yourself to others, in the fear of Christ (v. 21):
— No more demanding my rights
— No more power plays
— No more one-upmanship
— No more willful disobedience of God, which is sin
— 1 John 2:6 and 4:17
