Reflection on 1 John 1:1-2:2

1John

Scripture

If we claim to have no sin we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth.

Observation

John proclaims the Christ, the pre-existent one. He saw Him and touched Him. He is the life and the truth.

God is light and there is no darkness in Him. If someone claims to have fellowship with God but lives in the darkness, he is not walking in the truth.

If a person claims to have no sin, they are deceiving themselves. But if we confess our sins to God, He will forgive us and cleanse us from all wickedness.

Application

Jesus is the light. He leads us in the way of truth and to the Father.

We must have an honest assessment of ourselves. To say we are without sin is to deceive ourselves.

Everybody sins.

But to those who confess their sins honestly before God, there is forgiveness and grace.

No sin is too big for God, no crime too heinous that grace will not cover it.

Prayer

Thank you for your grace Lord, setting me fre from sin. Amen.
