God’s Truth for Trying Times - 10/22/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: 1 John 4:15-16

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. [1 John 4:15-16 ESV] 


CONSIDER: Believing and knowing the truth, and trusting your soul upon the gospel truth, is proof positive that you know Jesus and you have been saved by grace through faith in him.


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
