Motivation – Life Together

July 7, 2010

I’ve been taking a class that is studying 1 John.  Yesterday when thinking about 1 John 1:3 it landed on me that when seeking to live out life in the church often our aims are wrong.  1 John 1:3 says he was motivated to write and announce because he wanted fellowship with those in his congregation.   John wanted life together with them, and with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.  His ministry was toward relationships.  Often our ministry is toward numbers, toward bragging rights, toward knowledge, toward stuff other than being in kinship with others and in kinship with the Father and Son.
