Lesson 30: What We Now Know About Ourselves and Sin (1 John 5:18-20)

As he began wrapping up his letter, John gave a bit more good news to his readers, in some ways he reiterated certain messages he had already put forward. But this news was that sin would not have the victory over those born of God. They were under His protection and had been given minds to know and remain with the true One—Jesus Christ. They had “eternal security,” a phrase that might be misunderstood or misapplied, but an important Christian doctrine nonetheless. Pastor Daniel highlights the good news John was proclaiming by stating, “Jesus Christ completely rescues us from sin’s curse of death and absolutely secures eternal life for us.”
