Faith in the Son of God

5Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too.G3956G4100G3754G2424G2076G5547G1080G1537G2316G2532G3956G25G1080G25G2532G1080G1537G846 2We know we love God's children if we love God and obey his commandments.G1722G5129G1097G3754G25G5043G2316G3752G25G2316G2532G5083G846G1785 3Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome.G1063G3778G2076G26G2316G2443G5083G846G1785G2532G846G1785G1526G3756G926 4For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.G3754G3956G1080G1537G2316G3528G2889G2532G3778G2076G3529G3528G2889G2257G4102 5And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.G5101G2076G3528G2889G1508G4100G3754G2424G2076G5207G2316 6And Jesus Christ was revealed as God's Son by his baptism in water and by shedding his blood on the cross—not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms it with his testimony.G3778G2076G2064G1223G5204G2532G129G2424G5547G3756G1722G5204G3440G235G1722G5204G2532G129G2532G2076G4151G3140G3754G4151G2076G225 7So we have these three witnesses -G3754G1526G5140G3140G1722G3772G3962G3056G2532G40G4151G2532G3778G5140G1526G1520 8the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and all three agree.G2532G1526G5140G3140G1722G1093G4151G2532G5204G2532G129G2532G5140G1526G1519G1520 9Since we believe human testimony, surely we can believe the greater testimony that comes from God. And God has testified about his Son.G1487G2983G3141G444G3141G2316G2076G3187G3754G3778G2076G3141G2316G3739G3140G4012G846G5207 10All who believe in the Son of God know in their hearts that this testimony is true. Those who don't believe this are actually calling God a liar because they don't believe what God has testified about his Son.G4100G1519G5207G2316G2192G3141G1722G1438G4100G3361G2316G4160G846G5583G3754G4100G3756G1519G3141G3739G2316G3140G4012G846G5207 11And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.G2532G3778G2076G3141G3754G2316G1325G2254G166G2222G2532G3778G2222G2076G1722G846G5207 12Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God's Son does not have life.G2192G5207G2192G2222G2192G3361G5207G2316G2192G3756G2222

Conclusion

13I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.G5023G1125G5213G4100G1519G3686G5207G2316G2443G1492G3754G2192G166G2222G2532G2443G4100G1519G3686G5207G2316 14And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him.G2532G3778G2076G3954G3739G2192G4314G846G3754G1437G154G5100G2596G846G2307G191G2257 15And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.G2532G1437G1492G3754G191G2257G3739G302G154G1492G3754G2192G155G3739G154G3844G846 16If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray, and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it.G1437G5100G1492G846G80G264G266G3361G4314G2288G154G2532G1325G846G2222G264G3361G4314G2288G2076G266G4314G2288G3756G3004G2443G2065G4012G1565 17All wicked actions are sin, but not every sin leads to death.G3956G93G2076G266G2532G2076G266G3756G4314G2288 18We know that God's children do not make a practice of sinning, for God's Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them.G1492G3754G3956G1080G1537G2316G264G3756G235G1080G1537G2316G5083G1438G2532G4190G680G846G3756 19We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one.G1492G3754G2070G1537G2316G2532G3650G2889G2749G1722G4190 20And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.G1161G1492G3754G5207G2316G2240G2532G1325G2254G1271G2443G1097G228G2532G2070G1722G228G1722G846G5207G2424G5547G3778G2076G228G2316G2532G166G2222 21Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God's place in your hearts.G5040G5442G1438G575G1497G281
