Click Here: Sermon Study Questions 6-18-17

  1. What does John mean when he writes that God is light?


  1. What is the relationship between God’s nature and who we as believers are to be?


  1. What does John mean by walking in the light vs. walking in the darkness? What is the false teaching that John is refuting?


  1. How can the phrase “walk in the light” seem counter intuitive? What is promised to those who do walk in the light?


  1. How is God faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us of all unrighteousness? What is He faithful to and why is He just?


  1. Do we confess our sins in order to maintain fellowship with God or because we are in fellowship with God?


  1. Why is it important to distinguish between justification and sanctification? How does Jesus’ exchange with Peter about foot washing in John 13 help us to understand the place confession of sins has in the life of believers?


  1. How does John solidify the assurance of our forgiveness in 1 John 2:1-2?


  1. What does it mean that Christ is our Advocate and propitiation? How does the Father having sent the Son further strengthen our assurance?


  1. How do the words Advocate and propitiation help us to understand the nature and extent of the atonement and what John means by “the whole world”? How does applying those words to everyone who has ever lived or will live lessen the force of what John is saying?


  1. How does walking in the light liberate us to be ourselves and what does it teach us about how believers are to relate to one another?
