We all desire to have assurance don’t we? Assurance changes our outlook on everything in life. Having assurance gives us joyful confidence and energy, while the absence of assurance tends to pull us toward anxiety and fear. John’s desire for the fellowship of believers is that they would know Christ fully, having assurance of eternal life, and the confidence to live in bold obedience to His word (1 John 5:13-14). Join us as we walk through 1 John each week, trusting the God will build our faith as we study together.
