1 John 1: 1-2
Ending chapter one of 1 John, we discovered that sin was an issue that had to be confronted for anyone walking in the Light. Fellowship with God is about walking in that light and how to handle sin, but before we can assume that sin is inevitable, we will find out that God doesn’t want us to sin. But if we do, we have some help for this crime.
Context: Chapter 1:1 – 4 Jesus is real, fellowship can be had; 5 – 10 The nature of God is Light, we must walk in the Light, we continuously confess our sins in the Light
The Believer’s Atrocity
VS 1a John is writing so that we don’t commit the crime of sin.
The Believer’s Advocate
VS 1b John explains our character Witness is Christ Himself
The perfect witness has an impeccable reputation, outstanding character, and no crimes.
Jesus is the judge according to John 5:21 – 23, and He is also the character Witness. We’ve got it made!!
The Believer’s Appeasement
VS 2 John explains that Jesus is the appeasement for the world.
“He Himself” is very important because He is the judge.
“the whole world” = means exactly what it says. But why is the resurrection so important?
