“May we thrive on the Bread of Life or starve on the crumbs of this world.” - Anonymous
We hope you’ll join along as we study the letters from John to the new Believers in Ephesus (western Turkey) and Asia. These letters were meant to encourage and strengthen the Church in their Christian life. It’s hard for us to comprehend not knowing how to act “Christian” since most of us have grown up in the church and have Bibles in every room of our homes. But the first-century Christians had neither. These letters gave them life.
Written by John, one of the OG disciples, in his latter years, these letters are shorter in length than his first, the gospel according to John, they emphasize the need to obey God’s commands while focusing on the love of God for us and our need to love one another as proof of our love for God.
We love to study God’s word. We hope you’re encouraged and spurred on as we discuss these books of the Bible. May His word continue to shape us, change us and move us toward obedience.
