Bible: 1 John 5:9-14

5:9 If we accept the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, because 1  this 2  is the testimony of God that 3  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.) 4  5:11 And this is the testimony: God 5  has given us eternal life, 6  and this life is in his Son. 5:12 The one who has the Son 7  has this 8  eternal 9  life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this 10  eternal 11  life.

Assurance of Eternal Life

5:13 I have written these things 12  to you who believe 13  in the name of the Son of God so that 14  you may know that you have eternal life.

5:14 And this is the confidence that we have before him: that 15  whenever 16  we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
