11Everyone who believes that 2Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and 3everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him.
24By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments.
For 5this is the love of God, that we 6keep his commandments. And 7his commandments are not burdensome.
For 8everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world--9our faith.
Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes 10that Jesus is the Son of God?
This is he who came 11by water and blood--Jesus Christ; not by the water only but by the water and the blood. And 12the Spirit is the one who testifies, because 13the Spirit is the truth.
For there are three that testify:
the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree.
914If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God 15that he has borne concerning his Son.
Whoever believes in the Son of God 16has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God 17has made him a liar, 18because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son.
