Great Field Position
Get in the Game – Part 1
December 29 – 30, 2018
“This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all…But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:5, 7
- In Jesus I Have “Great Field Position”.
To Capitalize on this “Great Field Position”:
- Join Jesus’ team.
“…if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” 1 John 1:9
- Get in the game.
“We are writing these things so that you may fully share our joy.” 1 John 1:4
“’(Jesus) Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.’” John 15:5
- Study the playbook.
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” 2 Timothy 3:16
- Trust the Coach.
“We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning, whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life. This one who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then he was revealed to us.” 1 John 1:1-2
- Play as a team.
“We proclaim to you what we ourselves have actually seen and heard so that you may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.” 1 John 1:3
“…overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” Romans 8:37
