1 John 5:1-5

New Living Translation (New Testament)
Faith in the Son of God

1   Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ[a] has become a child of
God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too.

2   We know we love God’s children if we love God and obey his
commandments.

3   Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments
are not burdensome.

4   For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory
through our faith.

5   And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that
Jesus is the Son of God.
