SEVEN REASONS WHY FIRST JOHN WAS WRITTEN

I would like to share the following outline on why first John was written from the book "Traveling through the First Epistle of John" by J. William Kanoy. Hope this be a blessing to you as you study this book.

PROVIDE --- Fellowship 1:1-3
PRACTICE -- Fullness of joy 1:4
PROHIBIT --- Sin in the life of the believer 2:1
PROMOTE --- Love among the brethren 2:5-10
PROCLAIM --- Forgiveness of sins 2:12-14
PROTECT --- Believers from seducers 2:26
PRODUCE --- Needed assurance 5:13

W.H.G Thomas says, "The Christian life may be summed up in seven words. It commences with Sonship, it is marked by Discipleship, it goes to Stewardship, it expresses itself in Worship, it responds to Lordship, it is realized in Fellowship, and it culminates in Heirship."
