1 John 5:13-21 - Our Assurance Of Eternal Life

13 I write this to you, that you may realize that you have found Immortal Life--you who believe in the Name of the Son of God.

14 And this is the confidence with which we approach him, that whenever we ask anything that is in accordance with his will, he listens to us. 15 And if we realize that he listens to us--whatever we ask--we realize that we have what we have asked from him.

16 If any one sees his Brother committing some sin that is not a deadly sin, he will ask, and so be the means of giving Life to him--to any whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin; about that I do not say that a man should pray. 17 Every wrong action is sin, and there is sin that is not deadly.

18 We know that no one who has received the new Life from God lives in sin. No, he who has received the new Life from God keeps the thought of God in his heart, and then the Evil One does not touch him.

19 We realize that we come from God, while all the world is under the influence of the Evil One.

20 We realize, too, that the Son of God has come among us, and has given us the discernment to know the True God; and we are in union with the True God by our union with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the True God and he is Immortal Life.

21 My Children, guard yourselves against false ideas of God.
