John declares his purpose for writing "these things" to his flock. "These things" are begun in verse 7, after John offers a parenthesis on anybody who sins. "I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin, but if anybody does sin..." He doesn't actually speak right away about those things to help keep his flock away from sin, but gives encouragement and guidance to those who do happen to sin. In verse 7 he gets to those things, beginning with the exhortation to love God and love their brothers. John explains that if anybody sins, we have an advocate with the Father who pleads on our behalf. Our advocate pleads His own blood on behalf of those whom He represents in order to appease the wrath of God against the sins of the advocates' people. John explains that they truly know the advocate if they keep His commandments. He then informs them that they are in Him if they walk as He walks, which is in obedience to the Father. Jesus the advocate obeys the Fathers' commandments. *NOTE: This is my summary of the passage. If I write an expository essay of it in the future, I will replace this summary with it. I'm using this arc to teach youngsters at church.
