5But the one who keeps God's word is the person in whom we see God's mature love. This is the only way to be sure we're in God.6Anyone who claims to be intimate with God ought to live the same kind of life Jesus lived.
27But they're no match for what is embedded deeply within you - Christ's anointing, no less! You don't need any of their so-called teaching. Christ's anointing teaches you the truth on everything you need to know about yourself and him, uncontaminated by a single lie. Live deeply in what you were taught.28And now, children, stay with Christ. Live deeply in Christ. Then we'll be ready for him when he appears, ready to receive him with open arms, with no cause for red-faced guilt or lame excuses when he arrives.
