|782||ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL LIFE||John 3, 10, and 1 John 5, Jerusalem.|
"Yes, God loved the world so much|
that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him
may not be lost but may have eternal life.
"For God sent his Son into the world
not to condemn the world,
but so that through him
the world might be saved."
"The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice;
I know them and they follow me.
I give them eternal life;
they will never be lost
and no one will steal them from me.
"The Father who gave them to me
is greater than anyone,
and no one can steal from the Father.
The Father and I are one."
This is the testimony:
God has given us eternal life
and this life is in his Son;
anyone who has the Son has life,
anyone who does not have the Son
does not have life.
I have written all this to you so that you
who believe in the name of the Son of God
may be sure that you have eternal life.
