Our Victory over the World

5Whoever believes that Jesus is the Messiah is a child of God; and whoever loves a father loves his child also.G3956G4100G3754G2424G2076G5547G1080G1537G2316G2532G3956G25G1080G25G2532G1080G1537G846 2This is how we know that we love God's children: it is by loving God and obeying his commands.G1722G5129G1097G3754G25G5043G2316G3752G25G2316G2532G5083G846G1785 3For our love for God means that we obey his commands. And his commands are not too hard for us,G1063G3778G2076G26G2316G2443G5083G846G1785G2532G846G1785G1526G3756G926 4because every child of God is able to defeat the world. And we win the victory over the world by means of our faith.G3754G3956G1080G1537G2316G3528G2889G2532G3778G2076G3529G3528G2889G2257G4102 5Who can defeat the world? Only the person who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.G5101G2076G3528G2889G1508G4100G3754G2424G2076G5207G2316

The Witness about Jesus Christ

6Jesus Christ is the one who came with the water of his baptism and the blood of his death. He came not only with the water, but with both the water and the blood. And the Spirit himself testifies that this is true, because the Spirit is truth.G3778G2076G2064G1223G5204G2532G129G2424G5547G3756G1722G5204G3440G235G1722G5204G2532G129G2532G2076G4151G3140G3754G4151G2076G225 7There are three witnesses:G3754G1526G5140G3140G1722G3772G3962G3056G2532G40G4151G2532G3778G5140G1526G1520 8the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and all three give the same testimony.G2532G1526G5140G3140G1722G1093G4151G2532G5204G2532G129G2532G5140G1526G1519G1520 9We believe human testimony; but God's testimony is much stronger, and he has given this testimony about his Son.G1487G2983G3141G444G3141G2316G2076G3187G3754G3778G2076G3141G2316G3739G3140G4012G846G5207 10So those who believe in the Son of God have this testimony in their own heart; but those who do not believe God, have made a liar of him, because they have not believed what God has said about his Son.G4100G1519G5207G2316G2192G3141G1722G1438G4100G3361G2316G4160G846G5583G3754G4100G3756G1519G3141G3739G2316G3140G4012G846G5207 11The testimony is this: God has given us eternal life, and this life has its source in his Son.G2532G3778G2076G3141G3754G2316G1325G2254G166G2222G2532G3778G2222G2076G1722G846G5207 12Whoever has the Son has this life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.G2192G5207G2192G2222G2192G3361G5207G2316G2192G3756G2222

Eternal Life

13I am writing this to you so that you may know that you have eternal life - you that believe in the Son of God.G5023G1125G5213G4100G1519G3686G5207G2316G2443G1492G3754G2192G166G2222G2532G2443G4100G1519G3686G5207G2316 14We have courage in God's presence, because we are sure that he hears us if we ask him for anything that is according to his will.G2532G3778G2076G3954G3739G2192G4314G846G3754G1437G154G5100G2596G846G2307G191G2257 15He hears us whenever we ask him; and since we know this is true, we know also that he gives us what we ask from him.G2532G1437G1492G3754G191G2257G3739G302G154G1492G3754G2192G155G3739G154G3844G846 16If you see a believer commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray to God, who will give that person life. This applies to those whose sins do not lead to death. But there is sin which leads to death, and I do not say that you should pray to God about that.G1437G5100G1492G846G80G264G266G3361G4314G2288G154G2532G1325G846G2222G264G3361G4314G2288G2076G266G4314G2288G3756G3004G2443G2065G4012G1565 17All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin which does not lead to death.G3956G93G2076G266G2532G2076G266G3756G4314G2288 18We know that no children of God keep on sinning, for the Son of God keeps them safe, and the Evil One cannot harm them.G1492G3754G3956G1080G1537G2316G264G3756G235G1080G1537G2316G5083G1438G2532G4190G680G846G3756 19We know that we belong to God even though the whole world is under the rule of the Evil One.G1492G3754G2070G1537G2316G2532G3650G2889G2749G1722G4190 20We know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we know the true God. We live in union with the true God - in union with his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and this is eternal life.G1161G1492G3754G5207G2316G2240G2532G1325G2254G1271G2443G1097G228G2532G2070G1722G228G1722G846G5207G2424G5547G3778G2076G228G2316G2532G166G2222 21My children, keep yourselves safe from false gods!G5040G5442G1438G575G1497G281
