1 John 2:6-29 NASB
6 the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked. 7 Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an
old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard. 8 On the other hand, I am writing a new
commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining. 9 The one who says
he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now. 10 The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause
for stumbling in him. 11 But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because
the darkness has blinded his eyes.
Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because
you know the Father. 14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because
you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone
loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful
pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God
it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but
they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. 20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. 21 I have
not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is the liar but the
one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not
have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. 24 As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If
what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
you. 27 As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing
teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. 28 Now, little children, abide in
Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming. 29 If you know that He is righteous,
you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.
