1 John 3:22-5:21
22 and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. 23 This is His commandment,
that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. 24 The one who keeps His commandments abides in
Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3 and every spirit that does
not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.
4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 5 They are from the world;
therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does
not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
know God, for God is love.
is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also
ought to love one another. 12 No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. 13 By
this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the
Son to be the Savior of the world.
15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for
us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 17 By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence
in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear
involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. 19 We love, because He first loved us. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates
his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment
we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.
children of God, when we love God and observe His commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments
are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.
not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that He has testified concerning His Son. 10 The one who believes in the Son of God
has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given
concerning His Son. 11 And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has the life;
he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that
you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears
us. 15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this. 17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading
to death. 18 We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. 19 We know that
we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding
so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
