A Study in 1 John

I forgot how many of my favorite passages come from the book of 1 John. Reading it in ESV gave me some new insights into the patterns of sin that come when we are not vigilant in pursuing God. When I read a book of the Bible on my own, I often look for supplemental resources. In this case, I listened to the following messages by Gregg Matte from Houston’s First and completed the YouVersion reading plans that were based on it.
