Description
Would you experience the joy of "living confidently," with the assurance of being prepared to meet God? Then lay hold of the contents of the Epistles of John. Its writer says, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life". There is no need for anyone to hope he is saved, for he may know. Read this brief Epistle with this thought in mind and notice how clearly the truth unfolds.

Summary
LOVE...FELLOWSHIP...HOSPITALITY... The Epistles of John abound with challenge and encouragement to Christians to develop and display love, fellowship, and hospitality. And CONFIDENCE... During its short history, the infant Church had gone through many storms - uncertainty, misunderstanding, persecution, false teaching. Confused and perplexed, some believers even doubted their salvation. John had written his Gospel for unbelievers that they might believe and be saved. He wrote his Epistles to believers that they might know they are saved, and how to live confidently in that knowledge.

Excerpt
In addition to emphasizing the believer's assurance, John launched an attack on the false teaching that had found its way into the church. At the time, the Gnostics were denying the humanity of Christ. This is probably why little is said about Christ's deity in First John. Just the opposite was the case in John's Gospel, where Christ is presented as the Son of God. In the first Epistle, Christ's deity is taken for granted, while His perfect humanity is presented in convincing clarity.
