約翰一書 1

生命之道

1論到從太初就已經存在的生命之道,我們曾經耳聞目睹,親眼看過,親手摸過。 這生命曾顯現過,我們看見了,現在做見證,向你們傳揚這原本與父同在、曾向我們顯現的永恆生命。 我們把所見所聞傳給你們,使你們可以與我們相交。誠然,我們是與父和祂兒子耶穌基督相交。 我們將這些話寫給你們,是要讓大家都充滿喜樂。

要活在光中

我們從耶穌那裡聽見、現在傳給你們的信息就是:上帝是光,在祂裡面毫無黑暗。 如果我們說與祂相交,卻仍過著黑暗的生活,就是撒謊,沒有遵行真理。 如果我們生活在光明之中,像上帝在光明中一樣,就能夠彼此相交,上帝兒子耶穌的血能洗淨我們一切的罪。

如果我們說自己沒有罪,便是自欺,真理就不在我們心中。 如果我們承認自己的罪,上帝是信實公義的,必赦免我們的罪,洗淨我們一切的不義。 10 我們如果說自己沒有犯過罪,就是把上帝看作說謊的,祂的道也不在我們心中。

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.
