New American Standard Bible

1 John 1

Introduction, The Incarnate Word

1What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life— and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us— what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.

God Is Light

This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.

Knijga O Kristu

Prva Ivanova poslanica 1

On, koji je život od Boga, očitovao se i mi smo ga vidjeli. Svjedočimo i navješćujemo vam da je on vječni život. Bio je s Ocem, a zatim nam se očitovao.

Govorimo vam o tomu što smo osobno vidjeli i čuli da možete imati zajedništvo s nama. A naše je zajedništvo s Ocem i njegovim Sinom Isusom Kristom.

Pišem vam o tomu da naša radost bude potpuna.

život u svjetlosti

Ovu nam je poruku dao Bog da ju prenesemo vama: Bog je svjetlost i u njemu nema nikakve tame.

Tvrdimo li da smo u zajedništvu s njime, a i dalje živimo u duhovnoj tami, lažemo i ne živimo u istini.

Ali živimo li u svjetlu Božje nazočnosti, kao što Krist živi, imamo zajedništvo jedni s drugima i krv Isusa Krista, njegova Sina, čisti nas od svakoga grijeha.

Tvrdimo li da ne griješimo, zavaravamo se i u nama nema istine.

Ali on je vjeran i pravedan; priznamo li mu svoje grijehe, oprostit će nam i očistiti nas od svake nepravde.

10 Tvrdimo li da nismo zgriješili, Boga nazivamo lašcem i pokazujemo da njegova Riječ ne živi u našem srcu.
