C. The Condition of the Divine Fellowship
1. Confessing Our Sins
5 1And this is the amessage which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that 2God is 3blight and in Him is no 4darkness at all.
6 If we say that we 1have fellowship 2with Him and yet 3walk in the adarkness, we 4blie and are not 5practicing the 6truth;
7 But if we awalk in the light as He 1is in the light, we 2have fellowship with one another, and the 3bblood of 4Jesus His Son 5cleanses us from every 6sin.
8 If we say that we 1do not have sin, 2we are deceiving ourselves, and the 3atruth is not in us.
9 If we 1aconfess our sins, He is 2bfaithful and crighteous to dforgive us our esins and 3fcleanse us from all 4gunrighteousness.
10 If we say that we 1have anot sinned, we make Him a bliar, and His 2cword is not in us.
1 My 1little children, 2these things I write to you that you 3may not sin. And if anyone 4sins, we have an 5aAdvocate 6with the 7Father, Jesus Christ the 8bRighteous;
2 And He Himself is the 1apropitiation for our bsins, and not for ours only but also for those of the 2whole cworld.
