Hebrews 9:27-28a
Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,
so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many;
1 John 1:5-7
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you:
God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another,

and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

“yoked together with Christ”
Mt. 11:29
Indications of this Dark World
I. Judge by human standards (13-18)
“God & I are in the majority!
He is all I need.”

II. Think they can know God without knowing Jesus Christ (19) (14:6)

III. Do not understand/appreciate the truth of God’s word (21-24, 27)
Only the Holy Spirit can break through a hardened heart and bring salvation to a hopeless sinner.

IV. They do not understand their bondage to sin (31-47)
*True Freedom comes only through Christ!
1. In bondage to sin
2. Servant of the devil
3. Destined for hell
