1 John 5:16-21 – Rocking the World Asleep

1 John 5:16-21 – Rocking the World Asleep

In today’s text, John is going to paint a rather strange picture of the secular world as lying in the arms of the devil being rocked asleep. As Paul says in 2 Corinthians 4:4, “the god of this world has blinded their minds” so that they don’t even realize that they are resting on the edge of the abyss.

As believers, we can’t end up in hell, but we can allow ourselves to be rocked asleep by the idols of this world. And if that happens, we lose our power and our witness, and might even find ourselves committing what John describes in today’s text as “the sin unto death!”
