How can joy be completed? John describes this as his goal in his first letter. The Apostle John was known as the disciple whom Jesus loved. John was inspired to write a biography of Jesus and a Revelation that offers visions of heaven itself and the end of the world. For this Bible study we will focus on the three letters John wrote to the ancient church. These words are preserved on the pages of Scripture for us to study. Written around 90 AD these letters to the ancient church from the pen of the Apostle John serves as a source of encouragement in the face of persecution and warning against false teachers.
Each Wednesday at 10:30 AM for ten weeks we’ll look at a portion of John’s letters. Everyone is welcome to attend this mid week study, Joy Completed. We’ll use Zoom for our meeting. HERE is the link.
Lesson 1: The Word of Life
Jesus is so many things, but one thing Jesus is not is a figment of your imagination. The Apostle John shows us in this first lesson how to find joy completed.
Lesson 2: Walk in Light
The darkness doesn’t stand a chance when Jesus comes. Darkness doesn’t struggle to hold its ground. It just vanished. Why would a Christian ever purposely walk back into the darkness? We’ll consider that and other questions in lesson two.
Lesson 3: Obey His Commands
God’s love is complete in and of itself because of Jesus’ saving work. As his love comes to us it can become more complete in our lives as we live out our faith. This is accomplished by obeying his commands.
