I just love 1 John. To me this letter from John is my love letter. 1 John shows us how to love. Not only ourselves, but others as well. Most of all it tells us about how much Jesus loves us. So much that He was willing to die on the cross for us and our sins. If we believe and confess our sins, God’s love and His light shall shine on us for eternity.
It doesn’t get any better than that!
In 1st John 5:13 it says “I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. And we are confident that when He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him. And since we know He hears us when we make our request, we also know that He will give us what we ask for. If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it. All wicked actions are sin, but not every sin leads to death. We know that God’s children’s do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them. We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come and He has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And know we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and He is eternal life. Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.
These are His words, not my words. They are God’s words. Straight from His Word (The Bible).
So my friends, if you are feeling condemned from you sins, your condemnation is not from God! Confess your sins to Him, and He will forgive you. But you have to let it go because He remembers it no more. It is time to move forward. Have a great day my friends, and remember there is no greater love than God’s love.
