||Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ, is born of God. And everyone who loves God, who provides that birth, also loves him who has been born of God.
||In this way, we know that we love those born of God: when we love God and do his commandments.
||For this is the love of God: that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not heavy.
||For all that is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world: our faith.
||Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God!
||This is the One who came by water and blood: Jesus Christ. Not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit is the One who testifies that the Christ is the Truth.
