Excited for 1 John

In a couple of weeks we move from the Gospel of John to 1 John. Be reading ahead and be excited for this new season! This is an awesome little book filled with tons of nuggets that are going to change the way we live and love. In the meantime, remember that God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all (1 Jn 1:5). All that is in the world - the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life-are not of the Father but of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God will abide forever (1 Jn 2:16-17).

We need to love the Lord, who is light, and walk in light, forsaking all of the stumbling in the darkness we mysteriously love so much.
