Today’s Reading | 1 John 1
Sign of our Walk
Today you begin a journey through the book of 1 John. This book contains important information about our salvation. It provides the characteristics of one who is truly saved and the characteristics of one who is not saved. It is a book that will confirm to your heart that you know Christ, or reveal that you are not really saved. With this in mind, why not read through 1 John with that central theme in mind, and record your discoveries. Each day, read the passage given and write down your observations on the chart below. Then, at the end of this book, examine your life to see if the fruits of true salvation are present. One important thing to keep in mind is the Christian life is a process. While you may still struggle in areas that reflect the life of an unbeliever, they should be diminishing with time. Are you seeing growth in those areas? You may not be happy with how much you have grown, but what is important, is that you have grown. Begin with prayer, asking God to reveal to your heart how you really stand before Him.
