The Word of Life

a That which was b from the beginning c which we have heard d which we have seen with our eyes e which we looked upon and f have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life g the life h was made manifest, and we have seen it, and i testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life j which was with the Father and k was made manifest to us l that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed m our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so n that our

Walking in the Light

p This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that q God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. r If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and s do not practice the truth. But t if we walk in the light u as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and v the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. w If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and x the truth is not in us. y If we confess our sins, he is z faithful and just to forgive us our sins and aa to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned ab we make him a liar, and ac his word is not in us.
