1 John God is the only pure light in this dark world - He is the very source. When we understand Gods ways.then we realise that nothing is truly understood, unless it is within the light of God. He is the truth and the life.
Context makes a difference in conversation, but also when we read the Bible. That& why we created Bible Need To Know, a recurring feature that looks at the story behind the stories in the Bible. Use these devotionals as you read
1 JOHN If anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins - and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.
