1 John 1:1

1 John 1:1

It was John the apostle in his gospel who penned the incomprehensible words: in the beginning was the Word. John’s thoughts must have travelled back into the distant past when God’s first revelation of Himself announced, in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth – and here at the start of his first epistle John had not exhausted that weighty theme, for he announced, That which was from the beginning….I proclaim to read more...

1 John 1:2

1 John 1:2

The apostle John was one of Christ's chosen disciples who walked with the Lord Jesus from the very beginning of His earthly ministry. John was among those who heard the Baptist proclaim: REPENT, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.. and who declared: BEHOLD! the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world. John was eye-witness to the lovely life of Jesus Christ the righteous - and he saw and testified to the truth, that in Him was everlasting life and love and read more...

1 John 1:3

1 John 1:3

The apostle John earnestly desired to tell all that he knew.. and all he had experienced and witnessed, of the glory and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. John had spent over three years walking and talking with the Lord and learning from Him - he had been with Jesus constantly, ever since that decisive day on the shores of Lake Galilee, when Christ called out to John to: “follow Me..'.

John was eager to share all that read more...

1 John 1:5

1 John 1:5

The heavens declare the glory of God to humanity and the scriptures increasingly unveil His perfect character and holy attributes to all the children of men, as we see multiple examples of His loving-kindnesss, His long-suffering mercy and His gracious faithfulness to all generations.

But in these last days God has given us the greatest revelation of Himself in the person of His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the read more...

1 John 1:6

1 John 1:6

When we trusted Jesus as Saviour we became children of God, entering into eternal union with Christ, a relationship that can never be broken. Only those who through the Spirit of God have been born-again into this beautiful, eternal union with the Lord Jesus, can enjoy sweet fellowship with our heavenly Father. God is light and in Him is no darkness at all – but no true fellowship with the Father is possible, when we allow the shadowy darkness of sin to read more...

1 John 1:7

1 John 1:7

Fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ can be such a blessed experience, but to enjoy fellowship with the Lord is the pinnacle of being a sinner saved by grace. Walking in the warmth and radiance of His light is a God-given choice for believers.

We can choose to live in the light, where we will maintain sweet fellowship with the Lord OR we can disobey His will for our life and foolishly step back into the read more...

1 John 1:7

1 John 1:7

Once enlightened by the Holy Spirit as born-again children of God, we have a true sight and a true sense of sin. Having first been convicted by the Holy Spirit of sin and righteousness and judgment, we are brought face to face with our own depravity and utter sinfulness and we begin to understand the tremendous price that Christ paid on the cross for us - for it is only by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, that we are forgiven of our read more...

1 John 1:8

1 John 1:8

We are not only sinners because we sin - we sin because we are sinners. We are inherently sinners because we are part of Adam's race and we entered this world with a sin nature, inherited from our human father. Sometimes the truth of what we were.. before we were saved by grace through faith, and the glory of who we presently are in Christ, can appear to conflict.

We move from being a sinner to being a saint. We transfer from the read more...

1 John 1:9

1 John 1:9

Although an unbeliever can gain much comfort from this verse, it is important to recognize that this is a verse that is addressed to Christians.

For the unbeliever this verse is certainly a glorious word of truth.. that the one who confesses their sinfulness with a penitent heart of true repentance will be forgiven - but this truth must not be divorced from the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ - the Anointed Messiah and read more...
