1, 2, &3 John – God and Love
Give me Jesus. Take the whole world, but give me Jesus. When we proclaim Jesus we gain victory over the Evil one who seeks to destroy our relationships and our very lives. Yes, give me Jesus! For I have been redeemed because of God’s love for me. Our sins have been forgiven in Jesus name! Do what God wants! There is no other way that is best!
1 John 2, The Message
12-13 I remind you, my dear children: Your sins are forgiven in Jesus’ name. You veterans were in on the ground floor, and know the One who started all this; you newcomers have won a big victory over the Evil One.
13-14 And a second reminder, dear children: You know the Father from personal experience. You veterans know the One who started it all; and you newcomers—such vitality and strength! God’s word is so steady in you. Your fellowship with God enables you to gain a victory over the Evil One.
15-17 Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity.
Dear Heavenly Father, It’s all about you! So we love You and want what you want for that is what is best for us! We are a redeemed people in You, because of Your love for us. Thank you, dear Jesus, for saving us and making us whole again.
In Jesus Name, Amen
