We began our study through the book of 1 John fourteen weeks ago with the desire to better understand what it means to be in a fellowship-relationship with God. Over this time, we have considered the conditions of relationship, the cautions to relationship, and the characteristics of relationship.
Today, we come to our final study in 1 John where we will be looking at four marks of a true child of God - for things that a true born-again believer will experience as they abide in fellowship with God. Firstly, they will experience victory over the world (1 John 5:4-5). Secondly, they will experience assurance of their salvation (1 John 5:6-13). Thirdly, they will experience guidance from God through prayer (1 John 5:14-17). And fourthly, they will experience freedom from habitual sin (1 John 5:18-21).
Read the passage individually & with your family and discuss the ways that you have experienced these wonderful blessings from God as a child of God.
