Sermon outline for Sunday, February 18, 2018

Pastor Richard C Klueg

The Marks of a True Christian

1 John 2:3-6

The importance of uniforms
What does a true Christian look like?
The Law of God (3-4)
we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments

Is this “legalistic”?!

Not perfection, but desire, effort, and increased success

The Love of GodThe Love of God (5)

God’s law does not contradict love, it defines love

A life of love is perfected

Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked

HypocriteSermon outline for Sunday, January 21, 2018

Pastor Richard C. Klueg

Hypocrites in the Church!

1 John 1:6-8

Actors and their roles

A Hypocrite Christian vs 6
If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness

Vs. 5 God is light

The hypocrite lies about God

The hypocrite lives an ungodly life

Side thought: The “hypocrites in the church” excuse

An Honest-to-goodness Christian vs 7
If we walk in the light as he is in the light

2 realities

2 cautions

A Humble Christian vs 8
A Christian will have
less sin, but cannot claim to have no sin!

Ways to claim sinlessness

We deceive ourselves

Do not just play the role. Be real!

Pastor Richard C Klueg

'Fess Up!

1 John 1:9-10

“Confession is good for the soul”
I Need Confession
If we confess our sins

What does it mean to “confess”?

What am I to confess?

To whom am I to confess?

Finding the balance

I Need Convictions

Two unsatisfactory responses

God is faithful

God is just

I Need Cleansing

And to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

“I will confess my transgressions to the Lord

Pastor Richard C. Klueg

Closing Down the Idol Factory

1 John 1:5

Be an iconoclast!
Little children, keep yourself from idols. (1 John 5:21)

How Can I Know God?
What is the source of our knowledge of God?

This is the message we have heard from him

Why Should I bother to Know God?
Not a priority for many

The most important thing to know

The “God-shaped space” in your soul

What Do I Know About God?
God is light.



Idolatry: Making God in our own image

Be an iconoclast!
