1 Whoever believes that a Jesus is the Christ is b born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and c keep His commandments. 3 d For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And e His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For f whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that g has overcome the world - 1 our faith. 5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but h he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
