1 John 1:1-10
John writes a letter to the churches and starts it from the beginning. These are fundamental words, basic, simple, and eternal. Don’t think too hard, or you will ruin the simplicity. Don’t take them too lightly, or you will miss the depth.
Daily Prayer: Jesus, teach us to walk in the light as you are in the light. Amen.
