December 24 "The Sum of Religion" I John 3-4

My Dear Children, The sum of all religion is in Christ, His birth and resurrection.  The sum of all things.  Remain in it.  I John 4:1.

"He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world." 1 John 4.  Two groups:  those in the world and those who are of God.  John writes not to the mass of humanity but to the community of sinful humanity united in walking with God.  Children, we will face spiritual darkness from those in our community---and we have---but the One inside of us is always Greater.  Always.
