Is the Witness of the Spirit Bearing Life in You? (1 John 5:6-12)Ben Alexander, 6 May, 2012
Part of the I John series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
What does Jesus coming by water and blood mean? What do we do with v. 7 and the first part of v. 8 in the KJV and the NKJV?
He who has Christ has life, and this life is just as much about quality as it is about length.

1 John 5:6-12
6 This is he who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not by the water only but by the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three that testify: 8 the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree. 9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. 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. 11 And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
