1 John 5:13-15 (NLT)

I write this to you who believe in the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.

[15] And if we know he is listening when we make our requests, we can be sure that he will give us what we ask for.

1 John 5:16-17 (NLT)

If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray, and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it. [17] Every wrong is sin, but not all sin leads to death.

Praying For Others

When we see someone stumble we should pray for them

Repentance

God’s mercy

A person can sin in such a manner that God will remove them

Annanias and Sapphira

1 John 5:18-20 (NLT)

We know that those who have become part of God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot get his hands on them. [19] We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the power and control of the evil one. [20] And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we are in God because we are in his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.

Safe Harbor

A new nature

The sin nature is no longer in control

The Holy Spirit is in control

Job 1:9-10 (NLT)

Psalm 34:19-20 (NLT)

The righteous face many troubles,

but the Lord rescues them from each and every one.
