1 John 5:15; 1 John 5:18; 1 John 5:20
And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him.
We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him.
We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true--even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
