An Eternal Kind of Life

What does it mean to have eternal life? That’s a good deal of what I talked about this weekend as I continued our “Love Letters” series on 1, 2, & 3 John this weekend at Eastbrook. My message was entitled “An Eternal Kind of Life” based out of 1 John 5:6-21.

You can listen to my message online at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also follow Eastbrook Church on Twitter. I’ve included my outline for the message below:

Saturday Prayer 13

As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: ‘be holy, because I am holy.’ (1 Peter 1:14-16, NIV)

Lord, please help me to walk in the ways of holiness as a reflection of who You are. Conform my desires to Your truth, and dispel the mirage of ignorant desires. May my words come from a holy mind and heart. May my actions come from a holy mind and heart. ay my interior life be overcome and strengthened by Your holy presence.

Lord, in the times of faltering, call me back to the truth. Lead me through the pathways of confession and repentance that open into the roadway of obedience. Even as You purify me within, let my steps of obedience purify me outwardly that I might receive and reflect the light of Your holy presence.
