Hope in Christ (Faith) Purifies

Nov 05, 2017

Passage: 1 John 3:1-3

Preacher: Jon Coyne

Detail:

We really struggle with the concept Luther brought forth which is stated, “By Grace are you saved through faith, not be works, lest anyone should boast.” in Ephesians 2. Satan wants us to forget this important principle because when we forget we not only rely on our own works which will fail us, but we also deny God’s grace and love in our lives. In our attempts to be pure, we lose sight of the fact that God alone provides purity. Today we will consider how God gives us the gift we cannot earn through our own work.
