Our Assurance Of Eternal Life

18 We know that everyone who has been born of God does not continue to sin, but the one born of God guards himself, and the evil one does not touch him. 19 We know that we are of God, and all the world lies in evil. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and He has given us an understanding so that we may know Him who is true. And we are in Him that is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and the everlasting life.
