Activities @ my thoughts

We were asked to highlight the word “believe” and “know” every time they occured in this chapter. This really helped me ponder what this chapter was saying. Ive never used this technique before – thanks Phil

By doing the first exercise I could tell how important John felt it was for us to put our trust in God.

Verse 1

By believing we earn the right to be called a child of God. What a priviallge!!!

Verse 2

By loving others and following His commands we are actually loving Him and pleasing Him
Verse 5 and 19

reminds me that if God is for us who can be against us (and win)

Verse 10 and 20

We can believe and know what Jesus did really did occur and that He was who He said He was. The Son of God.

Verse 13 and 20

We can assured of eternal life by believing and knowing God is real

Verse 14 and 15

Are wonderful!!! He will listen to us!!! its like I said yesterday we are never alone!!! Praise Him

Verse 18

We are safe from harm when we are with Him. Again such reassureance

Verse 19

reminds me although we live in this world we are not part of it

I like the way verses 5 and 19; 10 and 20; and 13 and 20 kind of line up with each other and add to each other

I also LOVE verses 14, 15 and 18


if we believe then

we know what the truth is

and it will set us free

  2. You reminds me of an ex-colleague of mine. She is a devout Christian and went thru’ a lot of marriage problems and her faith helped her to deal with her misery. Like you, she likes studying about the faith and the verses that comes with it.

    By the way, thanks for dropping by my blog. Cheers!
