November 28, 2021, DAY 330: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: 1 John 1-3

November 28, 2021

1 JOHN 1-3

Today, our journey takes us through 1 John 1-3. This letter is believed to be written by the Apostle John. This letter was likely written near the end of John’s life. John maintained his zeal for Christ throughout his life and is believed to be the longest living eye-witness to Jesus Christ.

Before reading, stop and pray, asking that the Lord provide understanding of 1 John 1-3. Read 1 John 1-3. Let’s journey!

The Letters of John, the Books of 1 John, 2 John, and 3 John, are believed to have been written by the Apostle John, a disciple of Jesus Christ. The letters were written near the end of John’s life, where he was overseeing a network of churches that met within people’s homes. This church community had recently experienced a crisis, which prompted the writing of these letters. Some people had recently left the community, were now denying Jesus as the Messiah, and ridiculing those who stayed and remained faithful.

1 John 1-3: God’s Word, His promises, are eternal. Some have already been fulfilled, others have not, but there should be no doubt that they will be fulfilled. Sin is in all of us, but Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself so that we could be saved. Anyone who denies Christ is not saved. Our love for Christ and our love for others should be evident in our lives. (1 John 1:1-3:24)

After concluding today’s reading, consider the following: What message is John giving? Why is it important? How is it relevant today? How can you apply it to your life?
