I have written
to you who believe
in the name of the Son of God,
so that you may know that you have eternal life.

– 1 John 5: selected verses in context
“Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
“God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
18 We know that no one who is born of God sins [editor note: “practices sin”]; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. 19 We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
