Tools specific to 1Jo 2:1

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:1

My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:2

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:2

He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:3

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:3

And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:4

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:4

If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:5

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:5

But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:6

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:6

Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:7

Dear friends, I am not writing a new commandment for you; rather it is an old one you have had from the very beginning. This old commandment—to love one another—is the same message you heard before.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:8

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:8

Yet it is also new. Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it. For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shining.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:9

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:9

If anyone claims, “I am living in the light,” but hates a Christian brother or sister,[fn] that person is still living in darkness.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:10

Anyone who loves another brother or sister[fn] is living in the light and does not cause others to stumble.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:11

But anyone who hates another brother or sister is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:12

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:12

I am writing to you who are God’s children
because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus.[fn]

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:13

I am writing to you who are mature in the faith[fn]
because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning.
I am writing to you who are young in the faith
because you have won your battle with the evil one.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:14

I have written to you who are God’s children
because you know the Father.
I have written to you who are mature in the faith
because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning.
I have written to you who are young in the faith
because you are strong.
God’s word lives in your hearts,
and you have won your battle with the evil one.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:15

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:15

Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:16

For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:17

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:17

And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:18

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:18

Dear children, the last hour is here. You have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and already many such antichrists have appeared. From this we know that the last hour has come.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:19

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:19

These people left our churches, but they never really belonged with us; otherwise they would have stayed with us. When they left, it proved that they did not belong with us.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:20

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:20

But you are not like that, for the Holy One has given you his Spirit,[fn] and all of you know the truth.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:21

So I am writing to you not because you don’t know the truth but because you know the difference between truth and lies.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:22

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:22

And who is a liar? Anyone who says that Jesus is not the Christ.[fn] Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is an antichrist.[fn]

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:23

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:23

Anyone who denies the Son doesn’t have the Father, either. But anyone who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:24

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:24

So you must remain faithful to what you have been taught from the beginning. If you do, you will remain in fellowship with the Son and with the Father.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:25

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:25

And in this fellowship we enjoy the eternal life he promised us.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:26

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:26

I am writing these things to warn you about those who want to lead you astray.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:27

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:27

But you have received the Holy Spirit,[fn] and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit[fn] teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:28

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:28

And now, dear children, remain in fellowship with Christ so that when he returns, you will be full of courage and not shrink back from him in shame.

Tools specific to 1Jo 2:29

Unchecked Copy Box 1Jo 2:29

Since we know that Christ is righteous, we also know that all who do what is right are God’s children.
