If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.

1 John 1:8-10

The Light Exposes Our Sin

The Apostle John wrote this letter and it circulated among the early church in Asia Minor near the end of his life.

The letter was written to people who followed Christ and he wanted to remind them that Christ’s death was a sacrafice for our sins.

If we have no sin, we don’t need a Savior

But first he needed to remind them – we have sin.

Now the great part is that  if we admit our sin and seek forgiveness we have the following results:

  • Forgiveness and reconciliation to God
  • Purification from the guilt and destruction of sins power.
