1 John, this book contains the word of life. This book is mainly about the way of life of christians. It comprises of what christians are suppose to do and are not suppose to do when are saved and have now received the Holy Spirit and are announced as christians. Every person becomes a christian when have been baptised and have received the Holy Spirit because nobody is born that way. So this book it’s all about how can a christian recognise the power of the Holy Spirit operating in him or her and one is able to bare good fruits.
