1 John 2:3

By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments.
1 John 2:3 NASB1995

Holy God, gracious and loving Father. No greater love was ever shown to me than when You sent Your Son to die for me. What honor can I show Father, but to be obedient to Your word. My heart is overjoyed in abundant thankfulness for Your sacrifice Jesus. Because I want to know You deeply God, I will honor You by hiding Your word in my heart that I might not sin against You by being disobedient to Your commandments.
Jesus, just as You have shown obedience to the Father and abided in Him, I long to abide with You, God, by keeping Your commandments. Disclose Yourself to me Jesus as You have promised. Come and make Your abode in me Jesus with the Father. Bring honor to Yourself God through me to and for Your glory. Amen.
Psalm 119:11/John 15:10/John 14:23/John 14:21 NASB

1 John 2:2

and He Himself (Jesus) is the propitiation (or satisfaction) for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
1 John 2:2 NASB

🌹God, You are a God of love and reconciliation. You displayed publicly before the eyes of the world, Jesus, as a life-giving sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation by His blood and all can receive this salvation through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness which demands punishment for sin. Therefore, Jesus had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. Thank You, God, for making a way, under the new covenant, so the perfection and sacrifice of Christ will cover (atone for) the imperfection and sin of those who identified with Him and accepted Him as Savior. Make my life worthy of the sacrifice You made on my behalf, Lord God, I pray. In Jesus name, amen.

1 John 2:1

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
1 John 2:1 NASB

God of the written word, Father of my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Honor and praise to You who sits upon the throne! You sent Jesus, the righteous, who is able to save forever all who draw near to You, God, through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for us.
There is but one God, and one mediator also between You O God and men, the man Christ Jesus, Your Son.
I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate me from Your love, God, which is in Christ Jesus my Lord.
The things that are written in Your holy Word are so my joy may be made complete. May I labor with Your children, thankful to be one, until Christ is formed in me.
Christ was risen and sits next to You most holy God, not entering a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in Your presence God on behalf of me. How can I not strive to be sinless and pleasing in Your sight, O God. Thank You, Jesus, for interceding on my behalf when I stumble and sin and not leaving me there but bringing me back to joy complete. To God be the glory for my Advocate, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Hebrews 7:25/1 Timothy 2:5/Romans 8:38‭-‬39/1 John 1:4/Galatians 4:19/Hebrews 9:24 NASB

1 John 1:9

Prayer:
Jesus, Savior, Redeemer! Praise and glory to Your name!! You who purifies the souls of people for Your own possession, purify me for Your glory so as to be zealous for good deeds.
I acknowledge my sin to You, And my iniquity I do not hide. I will confess my transgressions to You, my Lord for You forgive the guilt of my sin. I will not conceal my transgressions for I want to prosper for Your kingdom purpose. Shower Your compassion upon me as I confess and forsake my sinful ways.
God, You are so faithful and righteous to forgive my sins and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Thank You Lord for Your compassion, forgiveness, and clothing me in Your righteousness! For this I am truly grateful. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
Titus 2:14/Psalm 32:5/Proverbs 28:13 NASB

1 John 2:8,10

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.
1 John 1:8‭, ‬10 NASB

Holy, righteous, irreproachable, just God. You are worthy of reverent praise for You are sinless, matchless and a faithful God!
Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart, I am pure from my sin”? Certainly not I Lord. Forgive me for every time I think that I am able or the “one” who is without sin, self-righteous in my own eyes and yet deceiving myself. For it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one”. Cover me in the righteousness of my Savior who died for me so that I may walk in righteousness for His name sake. I have received His testimony and set my seal to this, that God is true. Your word is in me and I confess Your righteousness as the truth for all mankind. You are not a liar. Your word is truth! Hallelujah!! Amen.
Proverbs 20:9/Romans 3:10/John 3:33 NASB

🌹Thank you, Father, for the Word, Jesus, living in me through Your Holy Spirit!

1 John 1:6-7

If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
1 John 1:6‭-‬7 NASB

I once heard it said that doctors are not perfect and that is why they are in medical “practice”.
I can relate to that. I am not perfect so I only “practice” the truth of God. After all God does say, “They who practice truth comes to the Light”. And when we do, Hallelujah, our deeds are revealed as having been performed in God. Did you catch that little word “IN”? So let us, house of God, walk in the light of the Lord, in fellowship with one another, bringing glory to our God.
John 3:21/Isaiah 2:5 NASB

Thanks be to You, my God, who always leads in triumph in Christ, and manifests, through Your beloved people, the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Jesus in every place.
God, may I always testify in Your Holy Spirit the truth in Christ with an attitude in myself which was also in Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. Glory, glory, Hallelujah!! Amen.

1 John 1:5

This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.
1 John 1:5 NASB

O Lord my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty, Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak, Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain. My soul will bless You, Lord! God, You are Light in whom there is no darkness and no variation or shifting shadow. Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from You, the Father of lights! Father, thank You for sending Jesus, the Light that dwelt amongst mankind. Direct me to walk in the light so darkness will not overtake me; for I know that the one who walks in darkness does not know where he goes. May I walk according to Your commandments until Your appearing, Lord Jesus Christ, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To You be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.

1 John 1:3-4

what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.
1 John 1:3-4 NASB

Joy made complete. What is joy made complete?
When the fellowship I have with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ is shared with you — my family, my neighbors, my co-workers, anyone who knows and loves Jesus as I do. That is why I share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I came to the realization of my need for Christ at the age of 15. At that time I thought myself a Christian. I went to church. I was a good, polite and moral young lady. At 11 I took a class to learn how to be a Christian and was baptized. I was now good to go.  .  . live as I wanted to. I had a place reserved for me in Heaven. No Hell for me.
Until God set me straight at 15 with a movie called, “A Theif in the Night”. That movie shook my world and made it clear that living a Christian life is more than having a mansion reserved for me in heaven. Or a happy life or being a moral person. The Bible says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.”  – Proverbs 1:7 NASB
The fear of eternal condemnation woke me up to my need for Christ. My need of a relationship with Him. It has not always been easy but it has all been worth the journey since I bowed before my Savior Jesus Christ at my bedside at the age of 15 and gave my life to Him, making Him Lord of my life.
Now I am reminded that,  “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20

Lord God, my Father, I thank You for that faithful, fateful night You called me to salvation, a true salvation. I thank You for not giving up on me but continually perfecting Your workmanship in me, Your creation over the years. I am grateful for the hard times that have strengthened me, making me more dependent on You. I thank You for the times of rejoicing because  of the good work You are doing in me and through me. I thank You faithful God for calling me into fellowship with Your Son, Jesus Christ, my Lord. May I never stop speaking about what I have heard or seen of Your mighty work unto salvation. And I pray, Lord God that You would use this testimony to touch lives for salvation, which is Your will, and for Your glory!! In Jesus name, amen.
Ephesians 2:10/1 Corinthians 1:9/Acts 4:20 NASB

🌹But the testimony which I receive is not from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved.

1 John 1:2

and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us—
1 John 1:2 NASB

🌹In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 NASB

God of revelation who unveils the mystery of Christ and His manifestation. I praise You for the testimony of John who saw and testified of the manifestation of Christ. His testimony is true; and he is still telling the truth, through Your word, so that all who hear may also believe. Believe the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to Your saints, to whom You willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in me, the hope of glory. Hallelujah to You, my Deliverer and hope!
Holy God, may I always carry about in my body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in my body. For I know we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Father, I pray, asking to be a letter of Christ to those around me, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. May I be a walking evidence of Christ living in me, the Light of life to all who are around me.
God, I thank You for eternal life and the promise that no one will snatch me out of Your hand. In humble adoration as Your servant, amen in Jesus name.
John 19:35/Colossians 1:26‭-‬27/2 Corinthians 4:10‭-‬11/2 Corinthians 3:2‭-‬3/John 1:4/John 10:28 NASB

1 John 1:1

What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life—
1 John 1:1 NASB

🌹Jesus, Word of God. The Word who was from the beginning. The God of Life who is the Light unto mankind. You are the Word of Life.
Jesus, You are before all things, and in You all things hold together.
Lord God, may I never stop speaking about what I have heard from Your word and seen of Your life changing presence in my life.
Jesus, the Word become flesh, dwelling among Your creation, showing Your glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
As Your child, I pray, I will testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world so that others will not be unbelieving, but believing as Thomas was when he reached with his finger to Jesus’s hand and reached his hand to the Savior’s wounded side. Jesus, You truly are the Word of Life. Praise and glory to Your name for coming to save mankind from the destruction of sin through Your sacrifice for our salvation. Amen.
