Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart.1 Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar,2 because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life,3 and this life is in his Son.412
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.5
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God6 so that you may know that you have eternal life.714
This is the confidence8 we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.915
And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know10 that we have what we asked of him.11
