1 John 5:21

Sermon Notes

John concludes his letter to the Ephesian church in a surprsing way: "Dear children, keep yourselves from idols." There really hasn't been a discussion in this letter about idols, except that there were those who were misrepresenting who Jesus was. A different kind of Jesus. A Jesus that didn't exist. So this was John concluding summary of what he had been teaching in this letter. Who would have thought that you could make "Jesus" into an idol - a hidden idol. Could that happen today?
