"And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full."
After my big read I had to find a portion of the Bible to study. This morning I began with First John. There are two main reasons that I decided on this particular book.
The first is that its small enough. Small enough to read in one sitting and small enough to study in a reasonable amount of time.
The second reason is my fascination with love. The love of God has always amazed me. That's what brought me to Christ as a teenager... I was searching for love. I knew that First John spoke quite a bit about love, so that played a part in my choice.
ANYWAY, all of this to say that when I started reading this morning I was thrilled to read the above verse: "These things are written that your JOY may be full." I John 1:4
I feel like joy has been missing in my life lately and I've been looking for it. I know that if we seek, we shall find and so, I am excited to study First John and restore the joy in my life. The deeper I dig the more joy I will find! (Today I just read through the book once to start with.)
Where are you studying?
