Bible: 1 John 5:4-15

5:4 because 1  everyone 2  who has been fathered by God 3  conquers 4  the world. 5 

Testimony About the Son

This 6  is the conquering power 7  that has conquered 8  the world: our faith. 5:5 Now who is the person who has conquered the world except the one who believes that 9  Jesus is the Son of God? 5:6 Jesus Christ is the one who came by water and blood – not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because 10  the Spirit is the truth. 5:7 For 11  there are three that testify, 12  5:8 the Spirit and the water and the blood, and these three are in agreement.

5:9 If we accept the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, because 13  this 14  is the testimony of God that 15  he has testified concerning his Son. 5:10 (The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has testified concerning his Son.) 16  5:11 And this is the testimony: God 17  has given us eternal life, 18  and this life is in his Son. 5:12 The one who has the Son 19  has this 20  eternal 21  life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this 22  eternal 23  life.

Assurance of Eternal Life

5:13 I have written these things 24  to you who believe 25  in the name of the Son of God so that 26  you may know that you have eternal life.

5:14 And this is the confidence that we have before him: that 27  whenever 28  we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 5:15 And if we know 29  that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.
