1 John 1 - Summary

v1-2
witnesses of Jesus Christ, who is the Word, and eternal life
v3-4
the joy of fellowship
v5-7
fellowship requires us to walk in the light
v8-10
walking in the light means being honest about our sins

Key v4

And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

This is the opposite of what you might think at first, because it's a sorrowful thing to confess our sins. But it's actually the way to have fullness of joy.

Application

I really want to have more joy in my life, so I'll be willing to admit a certain sin that easily besets me: when I do something wrong out of being bitter towards a certain person.
