Today, we are excited to be starting a new book study of 1 John. The main theme of 1 John has to do with an incredible vital topic that we often tend to overlook or neglect, and that’s our relationship with God. It’s for this reason, we will be taking our time in studying through this book, trusting that our walks with Christ will be renewed & strengthened as a result. We’ll be considering the conditions of our relationship with God (1 John 1:1-2:14), the cautions to our relationship with Him (1 John 2:15-27), the characteristics of that relationship (1 John 2:28-5:3), along with the consequences of our relationship with Him (1 John 5:4-21).
In this week’s passage, we’re going to begin with an introduction / overview of the book, followed by looking at the first condition mentioned in a believer’s relationship with God, which is that they walk in the light.
