Walk in the Light

Today’s sermon is one of my all time favorites. I actually preached the sermon at Clear Lake back in early January of 2000. After the sermon, someone at church commented that in the margin of 1 John, chapter 1 she had formerly written, “Direction, Not Perfection.”

It really is good news that Jesus saves us from sin. Not only our past sins, but also present and future. How wonderful it is that when the goal of our lives is to please God the blood of Jesus continually cleanses us from sin, thus enabling us to grow in our Christlikeness. As a result we become more involved in loving and serving others instead of trying to find life by focusing on ourselves. What a Savior!

    Direction – not perfection, was also one of the things that I took away from the sermon. I kept saying that to myself over and over (while still listening to your sermon, of course!).

    You also seemed more animated this morning – you saying that it was one of your all times favs – maybe you were just having fun!
