Born Again to New Confidence, Nature, Status, Troubles, Hope, and Duty (Family Worship in 1John 2:28–3:3)

What is new in the new birth? Pastor leads his family in tomorrow’s “Hopewell @Home” passage. 1John 2:28–3:3 prepares us for the opening portion of the public worship on the coming Lord’s Day. In these five verses of Sacred Scripture, we learn that we are born again to a new confidence that Jesus is ours, a new nature that is righteous like His, a new status of children adopted in love, new troubles of being rejected by those who reject the Lord, the new hope of Christ's appearing and being like Him at it, and the new duty of purifying ourselves as He is pure.
