Day 341: December 7 (1 John 5)
As John reaches the conclusion of his first letter, he teaches us about faith in Jesus. Sometimes faith is portrayed as an irrational leap into the unknown, or a personal choice to be kept private, but John shows us that faith is neither of these things. Our belief in Jesus is strongly supported by the evidence of His life, death and resurrection, and so we share this belief with others, knowing it is the best gift we could give them.
In conclusion, John emphasizes repeatedly that Jesus is the only true God. In John’s day, just as in ours, that was the vital foundation on which everything else rests. I pray your faith in the only true God – Jesus Christ – grows in depth and in expression today!
Have a great day!
