Oh, yes, this post! Hard truth that we all need to be reminded of as we walk with Jesus. We shouldn’t be surprised when the world hates us.
Welcome to Week 4 of I John as we dig into 3:1-24. Today we have excerpts of Day 1 of the study. We hope you'll read, listen, memorize, and meditate on this section of Scripture throughout the week.
Brianna Hines challenges us that sometimes we get so focused on hunting for antichrists that we fail to see the faithful people right in front of us.

Total darkness is a terrifying and disorienting thing. It is the perfect picture of a life lived apart from God’s presence. In First John we read that “God is Light.” Not that God likes light, or even that He created it, but that He actually is light itself. I realize that the author John loved metaphor and symbolism, so I don’t expect to get to heaven and just see a massive supernova sitting on a throne, but being in the presence of God is undeniably like being in the light. In the light, all things are visible, nothing is hidden. Things that were once distorted by shadow and darkness can be seen for what they really are.
