Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness (Pt. 1)

I was reading an article recently about the Constitution and of course there was the phrase – “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

I was struck by how that relates to the text we find in I John 1:1-4.

I’d like to share this with you over the next couple of posts. First, we see the aspect of LIFE in v. 1.

As creatures of God, we exist to exalt Jesus Christ (Rev. 4:11). As sinners, mankind falls far short of that purpose, except that when we accept Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross, we enter into that relationship which allows us to worship and honor Him by living the redeemed life.

As Christians, we have our very life and reason for existence in Him. If we are here for any other reason we are here for the wrong reason.

John 1:1 tells us that He is the Word. He is the Word of Life. He has always been and He will always be. Anything else we may be about will pass away.

He is the LIFE, He is the Rock, the Foundation of life for His people.
