John Part 3 Lesson 1, Overview
SHARE IN THE INTIMACY OF HIS DISCIPLES!
This study is for you so that you might share in great measure the intimacy the disciples knew with the Lord when He drew aside from the world to instruct His own. This portion of the Gospel of John, especially chapters 13 through 16, contains some of the most enlightened teaching to be found in the Word of God on the intimacy with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that belongs to the child of God. Do you want to know what Jesus meant when He said that He had come that we might have life and have it more abundantly? In this third portion of John you will find the abundance of life to which Jesus is referring. Do your homework well, Beloved. Although your study time is limited in In & Out, try to allow time to meditate on the truths of this marvelous Gospel. Inscribe these truths on your heart through prayer, secure them in your mind through meditation, and then, let them bear fruit in your life.
