1 John 2:1; 1 John 2:28 (New International Version)
My dear children, 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 defense--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.
