1st John 5:18-20

1 John 5:18-20 “We know that those who are children of God do not keep on sinning. The Son of God keeps them safe. The evil one can't harm them. We know that we are children of God. We know that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. We also know that the Son of God has come. He has given us understanding. Now we can know the One who is true. And we belong to the One who is true. We also belong to his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the true God. He is eternal life.”

There are three important things in these verses.

1. We have the power over sin. Where it says “anyone born of God does not continue to sin”
2. A Christian is on the side of God and against the world.
3. We know Jesus: that He came, why He came, that He is the truth and gives us eternal life. We don’t have to guess about the meaning of life anymore, or where did we come from or who is God or what happens after death. Jesus told us and we know.
