Description

THE LEGACY AUTHENTIC LOVE 
Authentic Christianity
Text: I John 3:11–24

Introduction: THERE ARE FOUR LEVELS OF LIFE.
Level 4 - MURDER The lowest level of life, and that is murder. I John 3:11–12, John 8:44,10:10 
Level 3 - HATRED I John 3:13-14, Matthew 5:22,1 John 3:15 
Level 2 - INDIFFERENCE I John 3:17   
Level 1 - LOVE     
   LOVE IS:
1. LOVE IS THE GREATEST VIRTUE 
I Corinthians 13:1–3 
2. LOVE IS THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT
 Matthew 22:36–40 
3. LOVE IS THE GREATEST TESTIMONY John 13:35 
4. LOVE IS THE GREATEST MOTIVATION 
II Corinthians 5:14, John 21:16
5. LOVE IS THE GREATEST INVESTMENT YOU WILL EVER MAKE

I.  AUTHENTIC LOVE GIVES A GOOD CONSCIENCE I John 3:19-20, I Timothy 1:19, Acts 24:16
There is no way that you can have a good conscience without love!  I John 3:19-20

II.  AUTHENTIC LOVE GIVES A GREAT CONFIDENCE   
I John 3:19-23, Psalm 66:18, I Peter 3:7

III.  AUTHENTIC LOVE GIVES A GRACIOUS COMMUNION I John 3:23-24
 ???
A. AUTHENTIC LOVE BRINGS THE WITNESS OF THE SPIRIT  
Romans 8:16 Gracious communion; as koinonia—that’s that word that goes all the way through the Book of 1 John.
Ephesians 4:26–27 

B. THE LACK OF AUTHENTIC LOVE BRINGS THE GRIEVING OF THE SPIRIT   Ephesians 4:30 -32
1. BITTERNESS GRIEVE’ THE HOLY SPIRIT! 
2. WRATH GRIEVE’ THE HOLY SPIRIT!
3. ANGER GRIEVE’ THE HOLY SPIRIT! 
4. CLAMOR GRIEVE’ THE HOLY SPIRIT!
5. EVIL SPEAKING GRIEVE’ THE HOLY SPIRIT! 
6. MALICE GRIEVE’ THE HOLY SPIRIT! 
Ephesians 4:30, Romans 5:5

Conclusion: Love is not the way to God; \ God is the way to love. I John 4:7–8, I John 5:1
Love Does! Man, just talks: A man became lost in his travels and wandered into a bed of quicksand. Confucius saw the man’s predicament and said, “It is evident that men should stay out of places such as this.” Next, Buddha said, “Let that man’s plight be a lesson to the rest of the world.” Then Muhammad said to the sinking man, “Alas, it is the will of God.” Finally, Jesus appeared. “Take my hand, brother,” he said, “and I will save you.” Jesus still saves. Give your life to Him today for tomorrow is not promised!!
