Main sermon text: 1 John 2:1-6
As our ADVOCATE, Jesus speaks on our behalf.
1. Don’t sin! Don’t look lightly upon sin!
2. When you sin, run to Jesus!
As our SACRIFICE, Jesus secures our salvation.
As our HEAD, Jesus demands our obedience.
1. Confidence in Christ demands obedience to Christ.
2. Obedience is the completion of love.

- moral test

Lift Jesus high in Doctrine & in Practice.
