1 John 5:4-14 NLT

4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.
5 And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son by his baptism in water and by shedding his blood on the crossa —not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms it with his testimony.
