1 John 1:1-4New Living Translation (NLT)
1 We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning, whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life. 2 This one who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then he was revealed to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we ourselves have actually seen and heard so that you may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We are writing these things so that you may fully share our joy.
Dear Father, Jesus existed from the beginning. Jesus is the Word of Life. Jesus is life itself. Jesus is eternal life. Jesus was with you, Father, and then he was revealed. I have fellowship with other believers. Our fellowship with with you, Father and with Jesus. May I fully share in the joy of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
