Join us as we begin our new series in the epistle of 1 John. There were two main concerns that John addressed. The first was heretical teaching and the second was ethics or the proper conduct of the believer. This series will be verse-by-verse teaching that will allow us to mine out the truths given to us by the Holy Spirit in this book. We will see that these truths are still relevant and necessary today. As we learn and apply God’s truth we will be empowered even greater to enjoy fellowship with the Father and with His son Jesus Christ.
Part 3 – John was not writing from a place of no experience. The first verses of 1 John 1 are a declaration of John’s qualifications for speaking boldly concerning the physical and spiritual nature of Jesus Christ as the Savior. The purpose of these verses is to set the tone for the rest of the book, defending the Gospel against heretics and instructing the saints in their daily walk now that they are in relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
