One of the things I love most about the Lord is His Word. The Bible is such an important gift, and through it we are privy to the most intimate of relationships with our Savior. In it we can find encouragement, wisdom and understanding. We are taught and cared for, and we are given assurance of His faithfulness, love, grace and mercy.

In 1 John 2, we are reminded that we know our Father intimately. We are reminded that our sins are forgiven on account of Jesus. We are reminded that we have overcome Satan. We are reminded that we are strong and the word of God lives inside us. This passage is so encouraging. It is a gentle nudge to recall that the Bible isn’t just a set of rules, a collection of confusing parables or a history book. It is one of the most important gifts God has given us to let us know He loves us and wants us to be encouraged and strong. It is an assurance of who we are — and always will be — in Him.
