Happy Worship Service Sunday! Get to church and get to Crushing Snakes!
1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched-this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4We write this to make our joy complete. (1 John 1:1-4)
It has been six months since we have read the works of John, but he closes out the Bible strong. It all starts with this first letter, the strongest of the three. Second and Third John are one page notes with little sustenance. But this first letter gives the world all the instruction we would ever need.
Just like in the Gospel of John, he opens with the proclamation that Jesus was the Word brought to life. And to further state that, John and the other Disciples were witnesses to the miracle of Jesus in order to testify to the truth and miracle that was the Son of God in the flesh. The next two months will be filled with the beautiful writings of John. It is a fitting way to close out our study of the New Testament by taking a close look at the works of one of Jesus’ most beloved Apostles.
