1 John 1:5-10
l This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that m God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
n If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and o do not practice the truth.
But p if we walk in the light, q as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and r the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
s If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and t the truth is not in us.
u If we confess our sins, he is v faithful and just to forgive us our sins and r to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say we have not sinned, w we make him a liar, and x his word is not in us.
