28'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'
4In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
15that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.
16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
4For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
7In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace 8that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
8What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.
6So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, 7rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
1 John 2:5
5But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him:
1 John 2:8
8Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
1 John 2:27
27As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.
1 John 2:28
28And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.
1 John 3:3
3Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure.
1 John 3:5
5But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin.
1 John 3:6
6No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.
1 John 4:13
13We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.
1 John 5:20
20We know also 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—even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
