This coming Lord’s Day (1/31/16), I hope to wrap up expositions through the book of 1 John. We’ll be honing in on 1 John 5:18-21. Notice this emphasis:
18 We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.
19 We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
While there’s much I hope to say in this “big finish,” I think this summary from Curtis Vaughan gets at where we’ll be Sunday: In this passage, we have “a resume of the chief facts relating to the believer’s new life. Most of it has to do with his union with God and the holiness that union involves.”
