1 John 5

If we believe in Jesus Christ and God (John 14:9-11), we would love with our entire beings. We would then desire to please Him in every way possible (Psalms 40:8). We would desire to do His commandments and His will (John 14:15).

We have the victory through Jesus Christ. If Jesus dwells in us, we have power over Satan and his hosts (Luke 9:1-2) Through every trial and tribulation, we are more than conquerors (Romans 8:36-37).

Truly the Word bears witness. For without the Word, we would not know God and the works of Jesus Christ. For the Word testifies of who Jesus is (John 5:39). The Spirit also bears witness of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit teaches us things that the world cannot show us (1 John 2:27). Even Jesus told His disciples that the Holy Spirit would bring everything back to their remembrance.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:26 (NKJV)

God has given us eternal life through His Son. Jesus is the way to the Father (John 14:6). Jesus came to give us life everlasting with Him in heaven so that we may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

And I give them eternal life and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. John 10:28 (NKJV)

If we ask God for anything as we are God's children, He is faithful to give it to us once it is best for us (John 14:13-14). For God hears us even in our times of sorrow and distress. God searches our hearts and He knows our desires (Psalms 139:1). He even knows our words before we even say them. He knows us from the inside out.

For there is not a word on my tongue but behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. Psalms 139:4 (NKJV)

I encourage you to continue to read the book of 1 John for yourselves that you may truly understand the love of God and His love for you.
