John testifies to his realtionship with Jesus, having seen Jesus here alive and on Earth, witnessing his ministry, life, death, resurrection, and ascension. Jesus is the word of life, God in person. John testified in his gospel that the Word became Flesh with Jesus. John makes it his mission to proclaim and witness, that we may have fellowship, with other believers, and with the Father, through Jesus. God is our friend. Testifying for God, and welcoming his children should complete our joy as it fulfills the mission that Jesus sends us on. There is no sin in God. We cannot sin, and claim fellowship with him. If we put aside sin, by accepting Jesus, as his blood has cleansed us, then we can have a relationship with God. If we say we have no sin– Arrogance and pride can blind us to our sin, we can only approach God with humility. We decieve ourselves– No man except Jesus was sinless. The truth is we are all sinners, and only through Christ, who was sacrificed for our sins, can we get to heaven. If we confess our sins– Repent to Jesus, he is faithful and just to forgive us– because He loves us. To say we have not sinned, we make him a liar– To deny our need for Christ, to reject his claims on us, to deny his death was for us, is to call Jesus a liar. This is not a rare occassion. We must pray for those who call Christ false. And his word is not in us– It could not be. Jesus died for us, and is the only way to the Father. That is is word, and his word is truth.
