I Will…Give You Victory

1 John 4:1-6         Sermon Resources       5 September 2021


Sermon Summary

Pastor Billy continues the Unshakable Promises series this week coming to the promise of spiritual power.  In the sermon we will consider both the seriousness of the issues we face and the confidence that is ours in Christ.


Discussion Questions

  1. What do you think John means when he says, “test the spirits?” In what ways do we go about testing the spirits?
  2. What is the danger of not recognizing the true nature of spiritual forces arrayed against God’s people?
  3. What is the “spirit of the antichrist?” What does this tell us about the seriousness of the opposition we face?
  4. Should Christians be afraid of the antichrist? Why or why not?
  5. What reasons for confidence does John give us in verse 4? Which of these is most helpful for you as you face your own challenges? How so?
  6. What would it look like for you to really press into this reason for confidence?
  7. How can we encourage one another as we engage in the battle that is set before each of us?


For the Family

  1. Memorize: 1 John 4:4 “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”
  2. Read: Matthew 18:1-5 and discuss what it means (and does not mean) to come to Jesus as a child.
  3. Discuss: What challenge might God be calling you to face by the strength of “he who is in you?”
