Day 7

Weekly Truth

from the 1, 2, and 3 John reading plan

1 John 1:9

Memorizing Scripture is a way to carry God’s Word with you wherever you go, keeping God-breathed instruction, reproof, and truth in your heart and mind each day. This week, we’re memorizing the key verse for 1 John:

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
—1 John 1:9

Write this verse down, keep it in your wallet, post it on your mirror or at your desk — anywhere you will see it often. Save the image below as a lock screen on your phone so you can read the verse throughout the day.

    This verse justifies and clarifies the rest of this book for me. I wrestled with the idea that being a Christian helps you stop sinning and that if you don’t stop sinning, you aren’t a Christian (at least that’s what my misunderstanding of this book led me to believe). But now I understand, by the grace of God, that being a Christ-follower, having the Holy Spirit within me, does indeed help to stop sinning AND helps me maintain the reality that I will never stop sinning entirely; no one can. No one is sinless, no not one, right? But Christ has freed me from my bondage to sin, He has given me the ability to break free from reputations cycles of sin. I will struggle, I will fail, but He is victorious for me…and that is all I need.
