just a minute 04.13.21

Our passage for today is I John 3:1-13

I John was written 70-90 years after the ascension of Jesus.  This means that few of the readers of this letter were adults in the time Jesus walked the earth.  They probably came to know through 3rd or 4th party voices – those who originally heard about the resurrection from the apostle or even from those who heard from the apostles.  Their perspective is from time of persecution not just towards the Christians but also the Jews – the second temple has been destroyed….it is a difficult for any person of faith.

This passage is a reminder to the readers that they are on a never ending journey. Much like the life of Abraham and Sarah who were seeking all the way to, and through, death.  However, this passage also guarantees that there will be a day when they see God clearly.  Contemplate verse 2 today asking ‘what does this promise mean to me?’

Have a great day, see you tomorrow.
