约翰一书 1

生命之道

1论到从太初就已经存在的生命之道,我们曾经耳闻目睹,亲眼看过,亲手摸过。 这生命曾显现过,我们看见了,现在做见证,向你们传扬这原本与父同在、曾向我们显现的永恒生命。 我们把所见所闻传给你们,使你们可以与我们相交。诚然,我们是与父和祂儿子耶稣基督相交。 我们将这些话写给你们,是要让大家都充满喜乐。

要活在光中

我们从耶稣那里听见、现在传给你们的信息就是:上帝是光,在祂里面毫无黑暗。 如果我们说与祂相交,却仍过着黑暗的生活,就是撒谎,没有遵行真理。 如果我们生活在光明之中,像上帝在光明中一样,就能够彼此相交,上帝儿子耶稣的血能洗净我们一切的罪。

如果我们说自己没有罪,便是自欺,真理就不在我们心中。 如果我们承认自己的罪,上帝是信实公义的,必赦免我们的罪,洗净我们一切的不义。 10 我们如果说自己没有犯过罪,就是把上帝看作说谎的,祂的道也不在我们心中。

New Living Translation

1 John 1

Introduction

1We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning,[a] whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life. This one who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then he was revealed to us. We proclaim to you what we ourselves have actually seen and heard so that you may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We are writing these things so that you may fully share our joy.[b]

Living in the Light

This is the message we heard from Jesus[c] and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.
