Remember how your English teacher taught you how to write an essay? Start with a key idea as an introduction, use three supporting points, then wrap it up with a conclusion. The apostle John used this same pattern when he laid out his first letter (his teacher must be proud).
John summarizes by telling us Jesus’ resurrection profoundly and gloriously alters our lives in three ways – our lifestyle, our identity, and our relationship with God. How has your life been transformed by your faith in Jesus? From where does your identity come? Do you “know about” God, or do you know Him?
