This time of year, with its holidays and fast approaching new year, lends itself to a natural season of reflection. And with that reflection, we once again feel the highs and lows of the past year and face a range of emotions regarding the new. Oftentimes, life feels like a roller coaster. And right about now, you may be wishing for a solid and foundational place to rest. 1 John is written so believers might know they have eternal life and also live like they have eternal life. In the very middle of the book, John gives three foundational truths that are critical for all Christians to grasp – the assurance of their adoption into God’s family, their future freedom & hope, and their present moral struggle. In preparation for this coming Sunday, we encourage you to read 1 John 3:1-3.
