Welcome to the book of John
WELCOME TO THE BOOK OF JOHN!
We thought it wise to advise you to get started on regular course from the Word of
God. You see, when we accept Jesus Christ, the Bible says that we actually become
born-again i.e. a spiritual life is born in us (John 3:3-6). Now every child that is
born requires proper feeding in order to grow healthy and strong, particularly
breast milk. Well, the Word of God is just that spiritual food we need for our
Christian growth (See l Peter 2.2-3).
To help you get started, we have devised a plan to guide you through the book of
John. Why John? Well, read the full meaning: “The Gospel according to John”. The
word gospel means ‘good news’. Now, this good news is about God’s love for you
which He demonstrated by sending Jesus to die on your behalf. He died in your
place so that you may have life through faith in Him. John sets his focus on the
person of Jesus Christ. Near the end of his book, he says that it was impossible for
him to have written everything about Jesus. But what he has written has just this
one purpose: “...that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and
that by believing in Him you will have life” (John 20:31, NLT)
As you read through, we pray that the Holy Spirit will grant you insight to
personally encounter Him on whom our faith depends – Jesus Christ, our Saviour
