I have been writing this to those,
Who believe in the Son of God;
Because of the faith that they chose,
Shows eternal life is no fraud.
We are confident that God hears,
If we ask for His approval;
For wiping away our tears,
Repentance for sin removal.
We know He hears our request,
And never will we hesitate;
For knowing that we will be blest,
Since salvation will resuscitate.
To see another believer,
Committing a nonlethal sin;
Pray that they are the receiver,
Of forgiving cleansing within.
There is sin that will lead to death,
But for that I cannot say to pray;
They must confess before their breath,
Has vanished and taken away.
We know that those who have been born,
From God do not go on sinning;
Although tempted where they sojourn,
God assures through disciplining.
But the Son of God protects them,
That the evil one cannot harm;
So the Father will not condemn,
Not setting off any alarm.
We do know that we are from God,
But the world has been in control;
Of the evil one that most laud,
Already has taken their soul.
We do know that the Son of God,
Has already been in this place;
Helping us to know of the fraud,
While providing us with grace.
We are in the One that is real,
In which is His Son Jesus Christ;
Not the one who will lie or steal,
From the One, who was sacrificed.
