One of the most difficult and most direct portions of the New Testament is found in 1 John.  The difficult part is in trying to understand the meaning of "...there are three that bear witness, the Spirit, the water, and the blood;..."  Many Biblical scholars have worked that statement over and come to various conclusions.  But, even more fascinating to me is the "direct" part that is found in I John 5:10.  "Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son."  As usual, Spurgeon drove this home in a great way when he said this.  . “The great sin of not believing in the Lord Jesus Christ is often spoken of very lightly and in a very trifling spirit, as though it were scarcely any sin at all; yet, according to my text, and, indeed, according to the whole tenor of the Scriptures, unbelief is the giving of God the lie, and what can be worse?” 

Let's be ready to encourage one another in believing, loving, and serving God this Thursday morning as we come together to study 1 John 5.
