Confident Life*

Our Bible Reading today finishes the fifth chapter of 1 John. John wrote much about our lives as Christians. John wants us to believe in God and Jesus, to live without sin and to love one another. In these verses, John says that he is writing so we can come close to God without any doubts. John wants all Christians to be sure that Jesus is God’s Son, that we have eternal life, and that God will answer our prayers.
It is wonderful to feel confident. If you feel confident, you know that everything is okay. You walk with your head held high and a smile on your face. It is good to be able to trust someone ? to know for sure that what they say is true. That is the way God wants Christians to feel. We should have no doubts about God. God is in control, and we can trust Him to take care of our future.
