My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you—
For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;
I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake.
Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous;
Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
Little children, guard yourselves from idols.
Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
However, if you have warned the righteous man that the righteous should not sin and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; and you have delivered yourself.”
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.”
Afterward Jesus *found him in the temple and said to him, “Behold, you have become well; do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you.”
Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.
But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John; for the works which the Father has given Me to accomplish—the very works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father has sent Me.
Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.”
She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “] I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more.”
even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
Little children, I am with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, now I also say to you, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’
So Jesus *said to them, “Children, They answered Him, “No.” you do not have any fish, do you?”
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase?
What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be!
I do not write these things to shame you, but to admonish you as my beloved children.
Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
I am writing these things to you, hoping to come to you before long;
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men,
but Jesus, on the other hand, because He continues forever, holds His priesthood permanently.
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God;
but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;
who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth;
For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;
Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.
If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.
You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.
