In this sermon series on 1 John, Pastor David Platt reminds us that God cares that we have an assurance of our salvation. In 1 John, we learn that God not only wants his people to know him, he also wants them to have assurance that they know him.
David Platt makes his way through the book of 1 John, pointing to various evidences believers can identify that should give us assurance of eternal life. While obedience is one indication that we have eternal life, our ultimate confidence is not in our obedience or in ourselves, but in the promises of God and the finished work of Jesus Christ. True Christians love and obey the God who first loved them.
