In the opening words to John’s first letter, he invites us to know and experience God has he has. He invites us into fellowship (friendship!) with God Himself. This is an attractive offer… to have God has your friend. Yet, John would also have us understand that this fellowship has implications for us and the way we live. We can’t claim to have fellowship with God and then have nothing change in us. As we continue through the first chapter of John’s letter today, we are challenged to step into God’s light.
