Promises of God from 1 John, Part 2
Here are selected promises of God from 1 John compiled by Kenneth Boa:
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (3:1).
“Now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is” (3:2).
“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins” (4:9-10).
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The man who fears is not made perfect in love” (4:18).
“God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life” (5:11-12).
“This is the assurance we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him” (5:14-15).
