So it is appropriate that later today in my Bible study I will be studying 1 John. The main focus of 1 John is about an authentic relationship with Jesus and coming out of darkness into the light. It focused on how to practice that relationship. It focuses on what it means to be a child of God and recognizing God's love and how to rely on it. We will read about God's assurances and how to overcome the world and learn about answers to prayer.
In a nut shell, I John is about Love, the love of Jesus Christ and what he has done for us. It is a great book to start back with after celebrating the life of my daughter. She is basking in the glory of God right now, up close and personal. It is our job to learn how to get as close and personal as we can while we are still here on this earth.
