Fury Exchanged for Favor
1 John 2:1-6
Sunday, November 14, 2021
Dr. Kelly B. Burton
Sermon in a Sentence: Since Jesus absorbed the fury God intended for us, we can show our genuine love for Him by our obedience to Him.
2:1-2 Christians who grow careless and sin have a Helper who will speak to the Father on their behalf.
2:3-5a Christians who keep God’s Words can be assured they are safe and spiritually maturing.
2:5b-6 Christians who will not walk out on Christ but walk like Christ can be assured they are in His family.
Key words to remember:
Advocate- verse 1, means one who is called alongside to help (see Jn, 14-16).
Propitiation- verse 2, only used four times in the entire Bible. Means a sacrifice that turns God’s fury into favor.
Keep- verse 3, means to guard or to protect.
Perfected- verse 5, means spiritually matured, not perfectly sinless.
Walk- verse 6, means ethical conduct or moral lifestyle.
