Today you should read: 1 John 5:1-12
There is so much here in today’s reading that we could discuss but as we get close to the end of 1 John it seems John is trying to send a clear message to the readers:
In Jesus you have so much so have faith; trust and obey
John tells us about 3 main things we have through our faith in Jesus.
1. Relationship to God- because of Jesus we move from enemy of God to child of God
2. Victory in battle over sin- we can only overcome our sin with the power that comes from faith in Jesus
3. Eternal life in heaven- through our faith in Jesus we have true life; eternal life forever with God
There is so much more we have through our faith in Jesus but what I want us to leave with this question in mind:
Where does my faith lie? Is it in Jesus or something else?
If your faith is in Jesus then all these things and more are yours. If it is not in Jesus then you don’t have these things in your life. So where are you with Jesus?
