1 John 5:1-9 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been fathered by God, and everyone who loves {the father}a also loves the [child] fathered by him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God: whenever we love God and keep his commandments. 3 For this is the love of God: that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, 4 because everyone who is fathered by God conquers the world.

God Has Given Us Eternal Life in the Son

5 Now who is the one who conquers the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 6 This is the one who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ, not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For [there] are three that testify,b 8 the Spirit and the water and the blood, and the three are {in agreement}c. 9 If we receive the testimony of people, the testimony of God is greater, because this is the testimony of God that he has testified concerning his Son.
