1 John 1,2

This is the message declared to you: 

       God is light;
       in Him there is no darkness at all. 

If you claim to have fellowship with Him,

          yet walk in the darkness,
          you lie,
               and do not live by the truth. 

But if you walk in the light

     as He is in the light,
the blood of Jesus,
His Son,
     will purify you from all sin.

If you claim to be without sin,

     you deceive yourself,
          and the truth is not in you. 
If you confess your sins,
     He is faithful
          and just
               and will forgive you your sins
                    and purify you
                    from all unrighteousness.

If you obey His Word,

     God's love is truly made complete
in you.

This is how you know

     you are in Him:

You must walk as Jesus did. 

Dear friends, 

     this is not a new command,
     but an old one,
          which you have had since the beginning.
     But it is as new;
          its truth is seen in Him,
and you
          because the darkness is passing
     and true light is already shining.

Your sins have been forgiven 

          on account of His name.
     You have known Him who is 
          from the beginning.

           You have overcome the evil one.
     You have known the Father.
You have known Him who is from the beginning.

You are strong

     The Word of God lives in you
          And you have overcome the evil one.
