When ROI is the focus, serving isn’t

Why would the author of John write these letters?

John wrote this letter for a purpose. It’s a selfless act. He had hope that these stories, the ones that he chose to include will have an impact on the people of the early Church. I am not sure if he would have anticipated his words carrying on over 2,000 year later. I don’t know if he would have thought that years later he would have an impact on me, and you and that the Church he knew would have morphed into what it is today.
