The purpose of the Son of God coming to this earth: for us to have incredible fellowship with Him

Observation notes 1. What is the logical connection between 1:4 and 1:5? The argument is this: that verses 5-10 are the content of the proclamation of 1:3. In essence, 1:3 is not just a message about Jesus, b ut also a message about what are lifestyle in Jesus should look like. 2. Why suddenly does " the blood of Jesus his son cleanses us" appear somewhat out of blue in 1:7 I am still not sure of this statement in the context of the chapter, although it is a great truth, no doubt.
