30 SECOND DEVOTIONAL 1 JOHN 1:1-4 NOT JUST RELIGION BUT TRUE SALVATION
1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life-- 2 the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us-- 3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.
In 1 John 1:1-4, it speaks of the fact that Jesus was seen and heard by the disciples because he came in the flesh. John says Christianity is not just another religion, but a relationship with a living God who came and died on the cross for our sins. But there is also a fellowship with other Christians and God that results from that relationship called salvation. We also need to realize that the final result is that our joy may be complete. Joy is a deep down settled feeling of peace and satisfaction that we can have no matter what the circumstances. Do you know this Jesus I am talking about?
