Wednesday Chapels {Senior Teen Camp 2013}

More of Emily's notes from Wednesday's chapels with Pastor Adam Davidson . . .

"After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
Mark 1:14-15

Repeat and believe

Isaiah 55:8-9

Repentance means to turn

To believe: To take something as true even without all of the facts

"As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”
Mark 1:16-17

What has Jesus done that makes him worth believing?  Mark 6:14

Problem with following Jesus: it's free yet it costs you your very life

John followed Jesus right into prison and then to his death

Jesus died so we can be set free


1 John 5:1-12
Faith in the Son of God

EVERYONE is being addressed

What does it mean to love God?
To obey His commands
His commands are not burdensome
You won't be able to do this on your own

Verse 6
Spirit capitalized: Holy Spirit

Our testimony < His testimony

I believe in Jesus:

-Jesus is the Christ
•experience of faith
•who He is

-born of God
•experience of rebirth
•what happened to me

- love for the Father
•experience of relationship
•lifestyle of worship

-love for the children of God
•experience of relationship
•lifestyle of service

God the Father is not like your dad
Your dad is not perfect like God is
God does not make mistakes

-carries out God's commands
•experience of instruction
•commitment to obedience

To love God is to live according to His revelation

Gods revelation is for His glory and our good. (1 John 5:3)

Why don't we obey God?
1) it seems impossible . . It's not!
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" Matthew 11:28

2) it seems irrelevant
"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
John 16:33

"If you love me you will obey my command" John 14:15(Jesus speaking)

Life change happens from the inside out

1 John 5:11 - 12
