1 John 3:2; 1 John 3:14; 1 John 5:15; 1 John 5:18–20; John 19:35
2 Beloved, we are zGod’s children cnow, and what we will be dhas not yet appeared; but we know that ewhen he appears1 fwe shall be like him, because gwe shall see him as he is.
14 We know that awe have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love abides in death.
15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.
18 We know that neveryone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but ohe who was born of God pprotects him, and the evil one does not touch him.
19 We know that we are from God, and qthe whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
20 And we know that the Son of God has come and rhas given us understanding, so that we may know shim who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and teternal life.
35 lHe who saw it has borne witness—mhis testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth—nthat you also may believe.
