Do You Believe? (1 John 4:12-15)Tommy Boring, November 2, 2014
Part of the Does He Abide Within? series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
If God was here in the flesh there would be a line just to see Him. If you're looking for God in a physical sense you will not see it. God is love and you will see it through others. People live to satisfy what they think Gods requirements are. People will search out what their soul is void of. Some will search for it in religion or doctrine. God has given to us a lot of things but the greatest is His Spirit. 1 John 2:3, 1 John 3:14, 1 John 3:19, 1 John 3:24, 1 John 5:20 Being saved is not based on a feeling. People will cling to things that has no bearing on their salvation. Their church upbringing, works and even love towards others will never be enough for salvation. People that are saved know they are saved because the same powerful God that created everything around us lives inside them. The Spirit will bare witness with others Spirit. Everyone that is saved should have a personal testimony on how God saved them. John was there with Jesus throughout His entire life, from birth to death. People usually will not die for something that's not true. 1 John 1:1-3 John walked and talked with Jesus but we do not need the flesh to know that His Spirit lives inside you. You will only be saved after your eyes are opened to your sins, realizing you are lost. After that, God must call you to be saved, the Truth must speak to you.

1 John 4:12-15
12No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. (KJV)
