Paternity Test (1 John 3:4-10)Gary Kirst, November 25, 2018
Part of the Christmas and the Devil's demise series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
When we think of Christmas, we tend to think of the baby Jesus, and Mary and Joseph, and the shepherds, magi, etc. (and rightfully so!), but another person we meet in the Bible who comes into play is the Devil. Christmas – praise God! – is about the Devil’s demise. But before we can rejoice in his defeat, we need to make sure we belong to God.

1 John 3:4-10
4Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 7Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. (KJV)
