But whoever keeps his word, God's love has most assuredly been perfected in him. This is how we know that we are in him:
he who says he remains in him ought himself also to walk just like he walked.
As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don't need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.
Now, little children, remain in him, that when he appears, we may have boldness, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
