“Dear Friends”

When was the last time you read First John?

One of the remarkable things about this short letter is the relational potency to John’s writing. He uses phrases such as:

Dear friends

Dear children

Fathers

Young men

This letter drips with family culture. The question that must be asked, when we see this relational topography to this letter is, does my life, ministry and church community have just as strong a relational heartbeat?
