1 John 2
24 See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.
25 And this is what he promised us—even eternal life.
28 And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.
