I this chapter John writes about all the pressures believers in Christ face. He notes some have left the faith. I am sure Christians were wondering what if this happens to me? John’s answer to this is simple- v. 24, “As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.” In the end, the only person’s relationship with Christ I have any control over is my own. So I have to see that His truth remains in me, and if that is the case I will remain in Christ and in the Father.
