1 John 1:1-10

An overview of the First Letter John can be summed up with 3 words beginning with the letter “L:” God is “Light, Life and Love.” Jesus Christ is God’s light to the world: He offers eternal life to all, and Jesus enables God’s disciples to love other people in growing and practical ways like our Savior.

There are two sides to the Spirit-filled life: the abundant salvation offered in the scriptures. First, the Holy Spirit offers a believer in Jesus personal assurance for sins forgiven, as they exhibit faith in the One who died on the Cross and rose again from the dead. Amazingly, after initial salvation, when one surrenders their will and all to the Lordship of Christ, there is the work of heart cleansing, as exemplified in Acts 15:9, “He made no distinction between us and them, for He [the Holy Spirit] purified their hearts by faith.”

Further, the Holy Spirit offers, according to 1 John 1:7, continuous cleansing to all Spirit-filled believers who obediently live in God’s Light.
