We Can Know
Today's reading: 1 John 5:6-21
One of the primary purposes served by the letter of 1 John is to present a strong and reasoned defense that our salvation rests securely in the hands of God, not on our actions. In other words, once we make the decision to turn our lives over to Christ and receive Him as our Savior, our salvation is sealed and secure. John wrote this letter so we may know that we are saved.
"I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life" (vs. 13).
What confidence do you draw from this passage as well as the Book of 1 John? What does the fact that God wants us to know, with certainty, that He is firmly and securely holding us in His hands, reveal about God's character and His love for us? Tami
