Over the next few weeks we’re going to be taking a look at the Book of 1 John.
John was referred to as ‘the Disciple whom Jesus loved’ (John 13:23). As we unpack various themes including light; love; identity; the world; spirituality; and faith, my prayer is that our love for God and for one-another grows deeper (Psalm 42:7).
At the heart of the letter is a profound statement that reminds us that Christianity is unique among the religions of the world; ‘How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are’ (1 John 3:1).
