New International Reader's Version

1 John 1:1-10

The Word of Life Became a Human Being

1Here is what we announce to everyone about the Word of life. The Word was already here from the beginning. We have heard him. We have seen him with our eyes. We have looked at him. Our hands have touched him. 2This life has appeared. We have seen him. We are witnesses about him. And we announce to you this same eternal life. He was already with the Father. He has appeared to us. 3We announce to you what we have seen and heard. We do it so you can share life together with us. And we share life with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4We are writing this to make our joy complete.

Walking in the Light

5Here is the message we have heard from him and announce to you. God is light. There is no darkness in him at all. 6Suppose we say that we share life with God but still walk in the darkness. Then we are lying. We are not living out the truth. 7But suppose we walk in the light, just as he is in the light. Then we share life with one another. And the blood of Jesus, his Son, makes us pure from all sin.

8Suppose we claim we are without sin. Then we are fooling ourselves. The truth is not in us. 9But God is faithful and fair. If we confess our sins, he will forgive our sins. He will forgive every wrong thing we have done. He will make us pure. 10If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar. His word is not in us.

Knijga O Kristu

1 Ivanova 1:1-10

Uvod

1Onaj koji bijaše od početka isti je onaj kojega smo čuli, vidjeli vlastitim očima i dodirnuli vlastitim rukama.1:1 U grčkome: Što bijaše od početka, što smo vidjeli… On je Isus Krist, Riječ života. 2On, 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. 3Govorimo 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.

4Pišem vam o tomu da naša radost bude potpuna.

Život u svjetlosti

5Ovu nam je poruku dao Bog da ju prenesemo vama: Bog je svjetlost i u njemu nema nikakve tame. 6Tvrdimo li da smo u zajedništvu s njime, a i dalje živimo u duhovnoj tami, lažemo i ne živimo u istini. 7Ali 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.

8Tvrdimo li da ne griješimo, zavaravamo se i u nama nema istine. 9Ali on je vjeran i pravedan; priznamo li mu svoje grijehe, oprostit će nam i očistiti nas od svake nepravde. 10Tvrdimo li da nismo zgriješili, Boga nazivamo lašcem i pokazujemo da njegova Riječ ne živi u našem srcu.
