For the next few weeks we will read through the letters of the apostle John. John’s premise is to establish the basis of the Christian’s assurance against which we are to test ourselves.
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life—the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us—that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete. 1 John 1:1-4 ESV
Why does John emphasize the way he experienced “the word of life”?
- Love was when God became a man
What has God revealed to you?
- The joy in the Lord to be my daily experience
- Our missionaries that they would see fruit for their labor
