14 I write to you , fathers ,
because you know s him who is from the beginning .
I write to you , young men ,
because t you are strong ,
and the word of God abides in you ,
and you have overcome the evil one .
24 Let m what you heard from the beginning abide in you . If what you heard from the beginning abides in you , then n you too will abide in the Son and in the Father .
27 But q the anointing that you received from him abides in you , and r you have no need that anyone should teach you . But as his anointing teaches you about everything , and s is true , and is no lie — just as it has taught you , abide in him .
9 s No one born of God makes a practice of sinning , for God’s seed abides in him ; and he cannot keep on sinning , because he has been born of God .
24 r Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God , and God in him . And s by this we know that he abides in us , by the Spirit whom he has given us .
12 q No one has ever seen God ; if we love one another , God abides in us and r his love is perfected in us .
13 s By this we know that we abide in him and he in us , because he has given us of his Spirit .
15 w Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God , God abides in him , and he in God .
16 So x we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us . y God is love , and z whoever abides in love abides in God , and God abides in him .
