A Love Letter from the Beloved Deciple

One of my favorite passages in the bible is the first paragraph of 1 John.  AsThe Beloved Disciple you read it you feel as if you are sitting there with John as he tells you about a good friend–a man he spent three years of his life with. He also wants you to know he’s is not just a man. His good friend is also the eternal son of God.  There is an authenticity to his words:

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete. 1 John 1:1-4, NIV Read more…
