A read through and discussion of 1 John, God's character, and the assurance only He can give.
Each week, as we gather together, we celebrate Jesus' defeat of death. Even as we are physically separated, we still proclaim this victory. His death and resurrection are our hope in even the worst of circumstances!
You may not have easy access to the normal emblems of this "meal" but you can use what you do have, just as Jesus did. During the course of His last meal with His disciples, He took the bread and wine that were a normal part of their Passover meal and gave them a new significance as they were made to represent His body and blood, given for our rescue. Take some time to thank Him today.
We also want to take time to give in recognition of how He has provided for our physical needs and as a statement of our faith that He will continue to do so. The easiest way to do that right now is to use this link to give online.
Questions for Discussion
John was known as "the disciple Jesus loved" & that affected the whole focus of his life (including this letter). What has changed for you by knowing you are loved?John reminds us of "the message you've heard from the beginning". What are some of the repeated messages you've heard here at WestWay? In 3:18 John urges us to actions that reveal love beyond mere words. How have you seen love shown and known lately?
