We learn that John wrote this letter to help protect against false teachings about Jesus. We look at the devastating consequence of God's final judgment at Jesus second coming and realize the need for us to see God's judgment through the lens of God's light. We conclude that we should look at and move in the direction of God's light so that we can correctly see all things!
We learn the reason that John wrote this scripture, was to refute wrong teachings about Jesus and sin. We also discover that God's light exposes sin and a need to confess our sin. We learn that we must abide in Christ repeatedly until finally we are transformed to where Christ is inside of us.
