And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4We write this to make ourjoy complete.”

    1. 1. 1 John 1<br />Chapter 1 <br />
    2. 2. 1 John 1:1-4<br />John starts off by telling you that he will share what he has seen, heard and even touched. He wants to assure you that what he says is true and that it really happened. In verses 3 and 4 he also gives two reason why he is writing this. <br />
    3. 3. 1st Reason<br />In verse 3 it says “so that you also may have fellowship with us”<br />Fellowship is a very important concept for Christians. Sharing the truth brings fellowship. A group of people getting together talking about God. It opens up your heart, you learn and grow, everyone can pray and help one another. Your relationship with God can only grow. If you have a small study group you can go to it is a great place for fellowship. To have fellowship you need to have a common view. If you do not believe in God or Jesus or that he died for your sins you can not have true fellowship. <br />
    4. 4. 2nd Reason<br />In verse 4 it says &quot;we are writing this that our joy may be complete.“<br />This verse adds to the previous one. It brings them joy to share the good news. It brings them joy to have fellowship with you. We get joy by talking and sharing with other people. We were not suppose to be alone and bottled up. It is for that reason why Eve was created. He wants us to come together and share the word with one another. <br />
    5. 5. 1 John 1:5<br />This is one of my favorite verses in this book.<br />“God is light; in him there is no darkness at all”<br />God is a lot of things ,but he is not evil, he does not sin and he loves everyone and everything. He is holly and true and there is no darkness or evil in him. <br />
    6. 6. 1 John 1:6-7<br />In the next two verse he talks about walking in the light. I seen in recent study groups that people do not understand what it means to walk in the light. So I am going to break it down verse by verse and try to explain it if you still need help understanding please send me a email so I can try to explain it better. <br />
    7. 7. 1 John 1:6-7<br />“If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.”<br />From what I seen people think this means if you sin you can not have a relationship with God. This is not true cause even in the next couple verses it says that we deceive ourselves if we say we are not with out sin. When you say you love God and you trust him ,but still sin and are not affected by it that is walking in darkness. You say you accepted Jesus as your savior ,but you still sin and do not feel guilty, you still do everything like you all ways did their was no change. This is walking in the dark. Just about any one will tell you that when they put their full trust and love in the Lord they went through a change. A good example is people with bumper stickers on a car. They say they believe ,but they do not pray, go to church, ask for forgiveness, help others or anything else. They say they have fellowship ,but they still walk in the darkness. <br />
    8. 8. 1 John 1:6-7<br />“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.“<br />If we truly believe in God and we realize and confess are sin we can have fellowship with one another. We have the blood of Jesus to heal and rescue us from our sin. If we think Jesus is not real or if he is not the son of God then how can his blood that you do not believe in heal you. If you cheat, steal, lie and not even care that you are doing it; then how can you say you are in the light. When you believe you can start sharing and growing with one another. <br />
    9. 9. 1 John 1:8<br />“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us”<br />To me this is a very important verse. As we all know we are all sinners. If you do not think you sin then what is the point of a savior. If you think you are sinless then what was the point of Jesus? If you can not admit that you sin then there is no room for you grow and heal. Just like in life if you have a problem ,but do not admit it then you can not solve it, it will just sit their and get worse. <br />
    10. 10. 1 John 1:9-10<br />Verse 9 is a excellent example of how much love God has. If we confess our sin and ask for help he will forgive us. He will even purify us to make us clean again. It is like a child stealing a cookie out of the cookie jar. Your mom knows you did it ,but she does not say anything. You feel guilty and just want to get it out to feel good again. So you tell your mother and she forgives you and hugs you and tells you it is all right to make you feel better. If you do not believe you sin then you do not have fellowship with God and you do have that relationship with him. <br />
    11. 11. Last Thoughts<br /> 1 John only gets better as it goes on. Even from the start it gets straight to the point. This first chapter is very important cause it shows us how we know if we have a real relationship with God. If we walk in the light and confess our sin then he will love and forgive us. As the blood of Jesus cleans and purifies us. This helps a lot against false teachings that we will be looking at later in the chapters. Just remember everyone sins ,but just cause you sin does not mean God does not like you . If you truly believe in God and walk in the light then his love and mercy will all ways be on you.<br />
