What I've learned from 1 John (4)

I’ve recently spent about 2 weeks combing through 1 John. Here are some things I’ve learned about God from 1 John:

  • Chapter 1
  • Chapter 2
  • Chapter 3
  • Chapter 4:
  • Jesus has come in the flesh and the Holy Spirit testifies to Him
  • He is greater than he who is in the world
  • Jesus is in Christians/His children (dwells, abides)
  • Jesus’ dwelling in us (His children) causes us to overcome he who is in the world
  • Love is from God
  • God is love and is the only way we can know love
  • God’s love was made known to us through the incarnation of Jesus
  • God loved us and sent Jesus as a propitiation for our sins
  • no one has seen (beheld) God at any time
  • God’s love is perfected in us
  • God gives His Spirit to those who abide in Him and He in us
  • God first loved us
  • (to be continued)
