1 John 2 ;
This is a longer chapter than the first, so I’ll just note what stood out to me.
1 John 2:2 “Christ is the sacrifice that takes away our sins and the sins of all the world’s people.” This is basically like 1 John 1:9, we are forgiven, completely and totally forgiven. We are so unworthy of His forgiveness, but He repeatedly tells us how much we are forgiven in His Word.
1 John 2:3-6 is basically telling us to be authentic and to not say one thing and do another.
1 John 2:9-11 ; I really struggle with reminding myself of this. If you hate, you cannot know love. So we must love everyone, which is soooooo difficult. For myself, I go to a school with people I can’t stand and I work at a restaurant with people I do not like at all, so I have to constantly remind myself to love them all. I’m sure I’m not the only one, so we really just have to pray about it and get help from God because this is one most of us can’t do without constantly asking for help. When you love everyone, it also creates peace.
1 John 2:15-16 ; This verse really stands out to me. When I was saved, I was at camp and they talked about idols all week. Idols were defined as anything that kept you from becoming closer to God. I would also define idols as things of the world. Pride and selfish desires comes from the world.
1 John 2:17 ; Things of this world will end, but things of the Lord live forever. My mom used to tell me how I can’t bring my possessions to Heaven so I shouldn’t get to attached to it, and she is completely right.
1 John 2:27 ; This is so relevant to me. Last week my pastor was talking to me and said that I do not want to stop sinning, but the Holy Spirit inside of me does. I see the Holy -Spirit as the Angel on my shoulder telling me what to do.
1 John 2:28-29 ; Basically, follow God and you will not have to worry about judgment day, because you will be a child of God.
If you want me to talk about any verse I didn’t go over, let me know!(:
Hope this speaks to at least one person, that’s my goal. God bless y’all♥
