The Apostle John really knew Jesus. Not simply because he was a disciple during Jesus’ earthly ministry. More than that. John, for decades after the ascension of Jesus, lived and ministered in the power of the Spirt of Christ – the Holy Spirit. He lived a genuine supercharged life. And the keys for every person to live a supercharged life are clearly presented in John’s First Letter.
In 1 John 3, we are given two principal reasons for why God took on human flesh and came amongst mankind as Jesus of Nazareth. In this mini-series, we will launch off from 1 John 3 and consider the critically important matter of the coming of the Kingdom of God. One of the keys for having a supercharged life as a disciple of Jesus is to understand why He came, what He did in His ministry and what He calls His people to do – in the now.
