And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
– 1 John 1:4
and for the persecuted and the hungry and the sick – it is difficult while the flesh is suffering;
but for the wealthy and the happy and the healthy – it is difficult while the flesh is deceiving;
and so to me personally the first epistle of John is the treasure and I encourage us all to read the epistle, verse by verse, and to meditate upon each verse and to ask our Loving God – am I ‘this’ way? and we may ask Him – my Loving Lord – please speak to me and please You teach me Yourself all things, in the Most precious Name of Jesus Christ our Living Lord and our Loving Savior, our only Hope, Amen.
And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
– 1 John 2:28
