1 John 5:13-15

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. This is the confidence which we have before (toward) Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
1 John 5:13‭-‬15 NASB

🌹Faithful God of Your promised word. Thank You for Your Word. The Word made flesh and the written word that promises eternal life to all who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Believing, we may have life in His name today and forever.
I am confident, Lord Jesus, that coming before You with a clean heart, one that does not condemn me because I keep Your commandments and do what is pleasing in Your sight, I will receive whatever I ask for from You. With a clean heart my requests will be according to Your will and I am confident that You will hear and answer so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Glory to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

1 John 5:12

He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. 1 John 5:12 NASB.

Jesus, my glorious Lord and Savior; what wonderful things You have done for those who believe in You. Whoever believes in You has eternal life. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life“. God, thank You for sending Jesus, Your Son, into the world so that the world might be saved. For You did not send Your Son into the world to judge the world but to save it. To those who have received the testimony have set their seal to this, that God You are true. For Jesus, whom God, You sent, speaks the words of God; for He gives the Spirit without measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand. Hallelujah to our faithful, truth bearing Savior, Jesus Christ in whose name I pray, glory to Your name, amen! John 3:15-17/John 3:33-‬35 NASB

🌹He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36 NASB

Do you have the Life? Are you living the Life?

Non-believer:

-Is judged because they do not believe  -Loves the darkness (sin) more than the Light. -Hates the Light so does evil and fears their deeds will be exposed in the Light of Jesus. -the one who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.

Believer:

-Is not judged. -Practices the truth and comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God who gets the glory. – Is obedient to God and His word. -The one who believes in the Son has eternal life.

1 John 5:10-11

The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son. And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1 John 5:10‭-‬11 NASB

God of all creation, Your plan is perfect. You created mankind and called them to love, trust and obey You. . . We failed and fell.

But God. You made a way for all mankind to reconcile this fallen relationship. You sent Jesus, Your Son. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. And this is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life. He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

GOD, I pray for family near and far; for co-workers, neighbors, acquaintances to know that in Jesus is life, and this life is the Light of men. He who believes in Jesus is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 

Thank You God for Your Spirit who testifies with my spirit that I am a child of Yours. Guide my words as You give me opportunity to testify and proclaim eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us— Jesus my Savior in whose name I pray, amen.  1 John 4:9/John 3:36/1 John 2:25/John 1:4/John 3:18/Romans 8:16/1 John 1:2 NASB

1 John 5:9

 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that He has testified concerning His Son. 1 John 5:9 NASB

Glory to the God of truth who sent His Son, Jesus Christ, — the way, the truth, and the life — and our Helper, the Holy Spirit, who is the Spirit of truth sent from the Father. The Spirit is the truth.

Jesus, Your very works testify about You, that the Father sent You. And the Father who sent You, has testified of You. “I am He who testifies about Myself, and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me.” God, You testify of Jesus and Your testimony is truth. In Your Holy Word You have given us true testimony of Your Son, our Savior. I pray we seek the truth of Scripture as it unfolds the life of Your Son to true understanding and knowledge of the great gift of life given through Jesus, our salvation. Thank You for Your Word, Lord God. Amen. Isaiah 65:16/John 14:6/John 15:26/John 15:26/John 5:36‭-‬37/John 8:18/John 5:32 NASB

But the testimony which I receive is not from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved.  John 5:34‭

🌹You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life. John 5:39‭-‬40 NASB

1 John 5:6-8

This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with (in) the water only, but with (in) the water and with (in) the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify:
the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
1 John 5:6‭- ‬8 NASB

This is quite interesting and may put a new light on just what Jesus did for mankind.
The sacrifice:

WATER – Now a man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer and deposit them outside the camp in a clean place, and the congregation of the sons of Israel shall keep it as water to remove impurity;it is purification from sin.
Numbers 19:9 NASB

BLOOD/WATER – For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Hebrews 9:13‭-‬14 NASB

But one of the soldiers pierced His (Jesus) side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
John 19:34 NASB

Praise to You, Lord Jesus for Your perfect, unblemished sacrifice to Your Father by which we are reconciled to serve the living God! And thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit who testifies to this truth because He is the truth. Always present are You God – Father, Son, Holy Spirit – when Jesus was baptized – After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.” Ever present today for believers – But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to youAll things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.”
How awesome it is to know, worship and love You God. Praise to God, three in One!! Amen.
John 15:26/Matthew 3:16‭-‬17/John 16:13‭-‬15 NASB

🌹Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”
John 13:8b NASB

🌹And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.
Hebrews 9:22 NASB

1 John 5:5

Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
1 John 5:5 NASB

By faith in You, Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner and in need of a Savior. Everyone is a sinner, as Your Scripture reveals, but it also reveals the promise that by faith in Jesus Christ the righteousness of God would be manifested, would be given to those who believe. And those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God overcomes the world. Out of Your love and care for Your creation, You have commanded that we believe in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, Lord God, and love one another. Your commandments are not burdensome but freeing. Thank You for loving me and for Your Scripture that guides me, shows me how to walk in step with You through obedience. To You, Almighty Sovereign God, be glory forever, amen.
Romans 3:22/Galatians 3:22/1 John 3:23 NASB

🌹that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

1 John 4:1-4

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and observe (do) His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
1 John 5:1‭-‬4 NASB

🌹Jesus, I believe You are the Messiah. I am born of God! I rejoice in You Father for sending Your Son. I love You Father. Thank You for Your great love poured out for me through Your Son whom I love. My being is from You, through You alone. Nothing comes into being apart from You, Jesus, and unless one is born again they cannot see the kingdom of God. I will show my love by my obedience to Your commandments. I will learn from Your Word, my gentle and humble Lord, and find rest for my soul, for Your commandments are not burdensome but light. By faith I shall overcome the world because You who is in me is greater than he who is in the world! Hallelujah!! Abide in me Lord I pray in Jesus name!!!

1 John 4:19-21

We love, because He first loved us. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.
1 John 4:19‭-‬21 NASB

Holy God, You are love. Pure, real unadulterated love. Not just the essence of love but the source of love. Without You no one can love or be loved. Thank You, God, for Your great love for Your creation demonstrated by the sending of Your Son to be the propitiation for our sins. By this we are able to know love, be loved and to love. God You are love. God, I ask forgiveness for my sin. Keep me in Your Light, Lord, practicing truth so I honor You in the keeping of Your commandment to love my neighbor. God, I greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory though I have not seen You but I love You and believe in You. Be glorified in me Lord as You love others through me. Be glorified Holy God. Amen.

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.
1 John 4:18 NASB

🌹Magnificent, glorious God worthy of all praise and glory; I enter Your presence with a grateful heart. Your perfect love casts out fear. I did not receive a spirit of slavery leading to fear but a spirit of adoption as Your child by which I cry out, “Abba! Father!” Holy Spirit of God I pray that I may serve, not with a spirit of timidity, which has not been given by You, but with power and love and discipline. Perfect me in Your love, Lord God for Your glory and will be done.  Amen.

1 John 4:16-17

We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for (in) us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.
1 John 4:16‭-‬17 NASB

Jesus, Holy One of God, through Your love in me, I have come to know and believe the love You have for me. God, You are love. My desire is to abide in You, so I ask for wisdom in the keeping of Your word, wherein Your love is truly perfected. With Your perfect love abiding in me I pray that I may have confidence in the day of judgment. I pray my actions reflect Your abiding love in me as I strive to walk in the same manner as Jesus walked. Thank You Father God for Your Son Jesus and the glory given Him. Through Jesus Your glory is given to Your people that they may be one, just as You and Your Son are one. May Your abiding love reflect through me to a world in need of the Light of Jesus Christ to Your perfect glory in whose name I pray, amen.
John 6:69/1 John 2:5/John 17:22/1 John 2:6 NASB

🌹Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
