1 John 2:1-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 My dear children,1 I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense2--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins,3 and not only for ours but also fora the sins of the whole world.4 3 We know5 that we have come to know him6 if we obey his commands.7 4 The man who says, "I know him,"8 but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.9 5 But if anyone obeys his word,10 God's loveb is truly made complete in him.11 This is how we know12 we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.13 7 Dear friends,14 I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning.15 This old command is the message you have heard. 8 Yet I am writing you a new command;16 its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing17 and the true light18 is already shining.19 9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother20 is still in the darkness.21
