Why Does He Say This?

1 John 3:20, “For if our heart condemns us God is greater than our heart and knows everything.”
This must be read with the immediate context, of course! Still, what exactly is he saying and why is he saying it?
Is it possible for our heart to condemn us and God, who knows our heart and our limits does not do that?
Is 3:20 assurance to self-doubters but who who do not doubt the God who became incarnate in Jesus of Nazareth?
Is the condemnation justified self condemnation?
He addresses them as “beloved” in this context why might their hearts condemn them!
Some of them have hearts that “condemn” them and some  have hearts that don’t condemn them.
Do you have something thoughtful to share with us about this?

God bless us all this incoming year according to our particular needs in our particular life situations and in the specific times of special need.

In the love of God,
