Last week we learned faith is the road to fully experience God’s love, and this week we will discuss the correct object of faith: Jesus. In 1 John 5:5 [one of the verses explored last week] the Apostle John asserts that faith in Jesus is the only way to overcome the world and enter into eternal life by God’s grace. After introducing Jesus as the correct object of our faith, John explains in 1 John 5:6-12 why we can trust in the truth that Jesus is the Son of God and our Lord and Savior.
Read 1 John 5:6-12.
