From 20,000 Feet
1 John 2 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous...
The second chapter of 1 John is LOADED with information, insight and guidance for us. So rather than focusing in on a particular verse or passage, I took more of a 20,000 foot overview approach. As I did this, I saw nugget after nugget of helpful and important information tucked throughout this chapter about living life as a Christian (vs. 3--I need to obey God's commandments, vs. 15--my love shouldn't be for this world) and about the security of our salvation (vs. 3--we can be sure we know Him, vs. 12--your sins are forgiven, vs. 13--you have overcome the battle with the evil one).
So what about you? What nuggets did you find in 1 John 2 about living the Christian life? What about the security of your salvation? Tami W.
