ZChurch Message for July 1, 2023 Full service Muzzle It!
Pastor Loretta Huggins takes a deep dive into 1 John 3:19-24. At first glance, you might wonder how the title “Muzzle it!” connects to these verses, but you’ll soon discover its powerful symbolism. In this thought-provoking message, Pastor Loretta will explore the concept of silencing the voices of guilt in God’s presence. The weight of guilt and condemnation can keep us from fully experiencing God’s love and grace. Through this message, we can learn how to break free from the shackles of guilt and embrace the freedom and forgiveness that is ours in Christ.
1 John 3:19-24 KJV 19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, (incapable of condemning us in the presence of God) then have we confidence toward God. (your inner accusations are useless, they cannot win an argument against the mercies of God) 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
1 John 3:19-20 (VOICE) There is a sure way for us to know that we belong to the truth.

He knows all things.
