1 John 2:28-3:10 “Abiding as God’s Children”

Passage: 1 John 2:28-3:10

False teachers were trying to upset the faith and confidence of John's audience, which was composed of one or more churches.  In this letter, John provides the church(es) with great comfort and reassurance in a number of ways.  In this text, he focuses on the fact that they were born again in the past, are called to abide in the present, and eagerly await glory in the future.
