Background of 1 John
Assurance brings peace.
Assurance brings joy.
Assurance brings rest.
We are about to embark on a journey through a letter in our Bible with this stated purpose: “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.”
This letter seeks to provide corporate assurance to a group of believers and personal assurance to individual believers of what it looks like to be in Christ.
Let’s go on the journey together and experience all of the blessings of knowing this rest-giving assurance of our standing in Christ.
