Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

John's letter speaks with few grey areas. So when he brings up the topic of confidence, he goes for jugular. 

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us-whatever-we ask we know that we have what we asked of him.
- 1 John 5:14,15 TNIV
Are you a confident person? What makes you confident? What is the source of your confidence? I know many of you. Some of you are brilliant business people, charismatic people, talent out the have reason for confidence in spades. Yet when John gets in our face, comes out of the grey area, he says, "That's all well and good, but your confidence is grounded in Christ alone."

Confidence in God. Life has a way of leading us back to re-discover, over and over again, just what is the real source of our confidence. Our confidence is in coming to God, grounded in an on-going relationship with our God. There's a real source of confidence.
