Overview

First John is one of the greatest places in the Bible to test one’s assurance of salvation. John gives us three external tests and one internal test. The external tests are behavioral, relational, and doctrinal. The internal test is an experience of knowing God – with all the connotations of the Biblical word “know.”

1 John 2:3–11

1 John 2:3-11 highlights the importance of following God’s rules and assures us of our salvation. It encourages us to have a deep, personal connection with God, similar to how two people are in a marriage. It also talks about the need for outside help to stop us from fooling ourselves. The main message is how God’s love and acceptance can change us. This happens when we match what we say with what we do, live a life of goodness and truth, and constantly think about the good news of Jesus.
