Answer by St. John’s (abbreviated):
We are God’s children now…and hoping in Him…purifies us;
…believing in his Son Jesus Christ…is obedience. (1Jn 3:2,3,23)
We live through Him…believing the love that God has for us
…having confidence for the day of judgment
…having no fear in love…for His perfect love casts out fear.
We love because He first loved us in Christ. (1Jn 4:9,16-19)
We overcome the world, [flesh and devil]…by being born of God.
The victory? Our faith…believing that Jesus is the Son of God! (1Jn 5:4-5)
So then: Whoever has the Son has Life! (1Jn 5:12)
We are from God! Not as those living under the power of the evil one. (1Jn 5:19)
My confidence: Having faith in Christ, we know ourselves to be alive toward God and neighbor, governed by the Rule of His Spirit, even now. (mjm)
