Yesterday we kicked off our new series in 1 John called Doctrine and Devotion. John wrote this letter to the church to encourage us to grow in our understanding of and devotion to Jesus. As we spend the next year in 1 John I want us to make the most of our time by digging deeper into Scripture together. Below are some resources to get us started.
Some of us will be memorizing portions of, or the entire letter of, 1 John. (It's only 105 verses and we have a year to do it!) The app I'm using on my iPhone is Verses. But there are many others for Android and iPhone users. Here's a list.
We recommend books every week at Redeemer in our worship bulletin. Here are three that will be making an appearance. Remember, there is no rush to get through these resources. We have a year, Lord willing, to study this together. Pick a book and take your time. The three below are ordered from easiest to read to most difficult.
The Incomparable Christ, J. Oswald Sanders
The Man Christ Jesus, Bruce Ware
The Person and Work of Christ, B.B. Warfield
I'm looking forward to what God will be teaching us this year. Let's pray for the Holy Spirit's help in understanding and applying the word of God to our lives.
