歷史順序讀經表 : 第325天
2 我的孩子們，我寫這些給你們，是要你們不犯罪。如果有人犯了罪，在父的面前我們有一位維護者，就是那義者耶穌基督。 2 他為我們的罪作了贖罪祭，不僅為我們的罪，也為全人類的罪。 3 我們若遵守 神的命令，這樣，就知道我們已經認識他。 4 凡是說“我已經認識他”，卻不遵守他命令的，就是說謊的人，真理就不在他裡面了。 5 然而凡是遵守他的道的，他愛 神的心就的確在他裡面完全了。這樣，我們就知道我們是在 神裡面了。 6 凡說自己是住在他裡面的，就應該照著他所行的去行。
7 親愛的，我寫給你們的，不是一條新命令，而是你們本來就有的舊命令。這舊命令就是你們聽過的道。 8 然而，因為黑暗漸漸消逝，真光已在照耀，我寫給你們的也是一條新命令，這在 神和在你們來說，都是真的。 9 凡是說自己在光明中，卻恨他的弟兄的，他到現在還在黑暗裡。 10 凡是愛弟兄的，就是住在光明中，在光明中他就不會跌倒。 11 凡是恨弟兄的，就是在黑暗裡，也在黑暗裡行事。他不知道往哪裡去，因為黑暗弄瞎了他的眼睛。
15 不要愛世界和世上的東西。人若愛世界，愛父的心就不在他裡面了。 16 原來世上的一切，就如肉體的私慾，眼目的私慾和今生的驕傲，都不是出於父，而是從世界來的。 17 這世界和世上的私慾都要漸漸過去，但那遵行 神旨意的卻存到永遠。
18 孩子們，現在是末世的時候了。你們聽過敵基督者要來，現在已經有不少敵基督起來了；因此我們就知道這是末世的時候了。 19 他們從我們中間離去，這就表明他們是不屬於我們的。其實他們並不屬於我們，如果真的屬於我們，就一定會留在我們中間。 20 你們從那聖者得著膏抹，這是你們都知道的。 21 我寫信給你們，不是因為你們不明白真理，而是因為你們明白，又因為謊言絕不會出於真理的。 22 那麼，誰是說謊的呢？不就是那否認耶穌是基督的嗎？否認父和子的，他就是敵基督的。 23 凡否認子的，就沒有父；承認子的，連父也有了。 24 至於你們，總要把起初所聽見的存記在你們心裡；你們若把起初所聽見的存記在心裡，你們也就住在子和父裡面了。 25 他應許給我們的，就是永遠的生命。
26 我把這些事寫給你們，是指著那些欺騙你們的人說的。 27 你們既然在你們裡面有從主領受的膏抹，就不需要別人教導你們了，因為在一切事上有主的膏抹教導你們；這膏抹是真的，不是假的，你們應該按著他所教導的住在他裡面。
28 孩子們，你們要住在主裡面。這樣，他若顯現，我們就可以坦然無懼；他來的時候，我們也不至慚愧地躲避他了。 29 你們既然曉得 神是公義的，就應當知道所有行公義的都是從他生的。
3 你們看，父賜給我們的是怎樣的愛，就是讓我們可以稱為 神的兒女，我們也真是他的兒女。因此，世人不認識我們，是因為他們不認識父。 2 親愛的，現在我們是 神的兒女，將來怎樣，還沒有顯明；然而我們知道：主若顯現，我們必要像他，因為我們必要看見他本來是怎樣的。 3 凡對他存著這盼望的，就潔淨自己，像他一樣的潔淨。
4 凡是犯罪的，就是作了不法的事；罪就是不法。 5 你們知道主曾經顯現，為要除掉罪，他自己卻沒有罪。 6 凡是住在他裡面的，就不犯罪；凡犯罪的，是未曾見過他，也不認識他。 7 孩子們，不要受人欺騙，行義的才是義人，正如主是公義的。 8 犯罪的是出於魔鬼，因為魔鬼從起初就犯罪。因此， 神的兒子顯現了，是要除滅魔鬼的作為。 9 凡是從 神生的，就不犯罪，因為 神的生命（“ 神的生命”原文作“種子”）在他裡面；他也不能犯罪，因為他是從 神生的。 10 這樣，誰是 神的兒女，誰是魔鬼的兒女，就很明顯了。凡不行義的，就不是出於 神，不愛弟兄的，也是這樣。
11 我們應當彼此相愛，因為這是你們從起初聽見的信息。 12 不要像該隱，他是屬於那惡者的，他又殺了自己的弟弟。為甚麼殺他呢？因為他自己的行為是惡的，弟弟的行為是義的。 13 弟兄們，世人若恨你們，不要希奇。 14 我們因為愛弟兄，就知道我們已經出死入生了；不愛弟兄的，仍然住在死中。 15 凡恨弟兄的，就是殺人的。你們知道，殺人的在他裡面沒有永生。 16 主為我們捨命，這樣，我們就知道甚麼是愛；我們也應當為弟兄捨命。 17 凡有世上財物的，看見弟兄窮乏，卻硬著心腸不理，他怎能說他心裡有 神的愛呢？ 18 孩子們，我們愛人，不要只在言語和舌頭上，總要在行動和真誠上表現出來。
19-20 這樣，我們就知道我們是屬於真理的。即使我們的心責備我們，在 神面前我們也可以心安理得，因為他比我們的心大，他知道一切。 21 親愛的，我們的心若不責備我們，在 神面前我們就可以坦然無懼了。 22 凡我們所求的，就必從他得著，因為我們遵守他的命令，作他所喜悅的事。 23 神的命令，就是要我們信他的兒子耶穌基督的名，並且照著他的吩咐彼此相愛。24 凡是遵守 神命令的，就住在 神裡面， 神也住在他裡面。憑著 神所賜給我們的聖靈，我們就可以知道 神住在我們裡面。
4 親愛的，不要每個靈都信，總要試驗那些靈是否出於 神，因為有許多假先知已經來到世上了。 2 你們可以這樣認出 神的靈：凡是承認耶穌基督是成了肉身來的，那靈就是出於 神。3 凡是不承認耶穌基督是成了肉身來的，那靈就不是出於 神，而是敵基督者的靈；你們聽過他要來，現在他已經在世上了。 4 孩子們，你們是屬於 神的，並且已經勝過他們，因為那在你們裡面的比那在世上的更大。 5 他們是屬於世界的，因此講論屬世的事，世界也就聽從他們。6 我們是屬於 神的，認識 神的就聽從我們，不屬於 神的就不聽從我們。這樣，我們就可以辨別真理的靈和謬妄的靈了。
7 親愛的，我們應當彼此相愛，因為愛是從 神那裡來的。凡是愛人的，都是從 神生的，並且認識 神。 8 不愛人的，就不認識 神，因為 神就是愛。 9 神差遣他的獨生子到世上來，要使我們藉著他而活； 神的愛就在我們中間顯明了。 10 不是我們愛 神，而是 神愛我們，差遣他的兒子為我們的罪作了贖罪祭，這就是愛了。 11 親愛的， 神既然這樣愛我們，我們也應當彼此相愛。 12 從來沒有人見過 神，我們若彼此相愛， 神就住在我們裡面，他的愛也在我們裡面得到成全了。
13 神把他的靈賜給我們，我們就知道我們是住在他裡面，他也住在我們裡面。 14 父差遣子作世人的救主，這是我們見過的，並且現在作見證。 15 凡承認耶穌是 神的兒子的， 神就住在他裡面，他也住在 神裡面。 16 神對我們的愛，我們已經明白了，而且相信了。
神就是愛；住在愛裡面的，就住在 神裡面， 神也住在他裡面。 17 這樣，愛在我們裡面就得到成全，使我們在審判的日子，可以坦然無懼。因為他怎樣，我們在這世上也怎樣。 18 愛裡沒有懼怕，完全的愛可以把懼怕驅除，因為懼怕含有刑罰，懼怕的人在愛裡還沒有完全。 19 我們愛，因為 神先愛我們。 20 人若說“我愛 神”，卻恨他的弟兄，就是說謊的。不愛看得見的弟兄，就不能愛看不見的 神。 21 愛 神的，也應當愛弟兄，這就是我們從 神領受的命令。
5 凡信耶穌是基督的，都是從 神生的，凡愛那生他的，也必愛那從他而生的。 2 我們若愛 神，並且遵行他的命令，就知道我們是愛 神的兒女了。 3 我們遵守 神的命令，就是愛他了；而且他的命令是不難遵守的， 4 因為凡從 神生的就勝過世界。使我們勝過世界的，就是我們的信心。 5 勝過世界的是誰呢？不就是那信耶穌是 神的兒子的嗎？
6 那藉著水和血來的就是耶穌基督，不是單用水，而是用水又用血；作見證的是聖靈，因為聖靈就是真理。 7 原來作見證的有三樣， 8 就是聖靈、水和血，這三樣是一致的。 9 我們若接受人的見證， 神的見證就更強而有力了，因為這是 神為他的兒子作的見證。 10 信 神的兒子的，就有這見證在他心裡；不信 神的，就是把 神當作說謊的，因為他不信 神為他兒子所作的見證。 11 這見證就是 神已經把永遠的生命賜給我們，這生命是在他兒子裡面的。 12 凡有 神兒子的，就有生命；沒有 神兒子的，就沒有生命。
13 我把這些事寫給你們信 神的兒子之名的人，是要你們知道自己有永生。 14 如果我們照著 神的旨意祈求，他必聽我們；這就是我們對 神所存的坦然無懼的心。 15 既然我們知道他聽我們的祈求，我們就知道，我們無論求甚麼，他必賜給我們。
16 如果有人看見弟兄犯了不至於死的罪，他就要祈求， 神必因他的緣故，把生命賜給那些犯了不至於死的罪的人；有至於死的罪，我不說他應當為那罪祈求。 17 一切不義都是罪，但也有不至於死的罪。
18 我們知道凡從 神生的就不犯罪，而且從 神生的那一位也必保守他，連那惡者也不能碰他。 19 我們知道我們是屬於 神的，而整個世界是伏在那惡者手下。 20 我們知道 神的兒子已經來了，並且賜給我們悟性，使我們能認識那位真實者。我們也在那位真實者裡面，就是在他兒子耶穌基督裡面。這一位就是真神，也是永遠的生命。 21 孩子們，你們要保守自己遠離偶像。
1 John 2:1-29
2 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
Love and Hatred for Fellow Believers
3 We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.5 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God[a] is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
7 Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard. 8 Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister[b] is still in the darkness.10 Anyone who loves their brother and sister[c] lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. 11 But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.
Reasons for Writing
12 I am writing to you, dear children,
because your sins have been forgiven on account of his name.
13 I am writing to you, fathers,
because you know him who is from the beginning.
I am writing to you, young men,
because you have overcome the evil one.
14 I write to you, dear children,
because you know the Father.
I write to you, fathers,
because you know him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
because you are strong,
and the word of God lives in you,
and you have overcome the evil one.
On Not Loving the World
15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[d] is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
Warnings Against Denying the Son
18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming,even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.[e] 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is what he promised us—eternal life.
26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. 27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.
God’s Children and Sin
28 And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.
29 If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.
1 john 3:1-24
3 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,[a] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
4 Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. 5 But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. 6 No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.
7 Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. 8 The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. 9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not lovetheir brother and sister.
More on Love and Hatred
11 For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. 12 Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous. 13 Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters,[b] if the world hates you. 14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. 15 Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.
16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
19 This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: 20 If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21 Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22 and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. 23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 24 The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
1 John 4:1-21
On Denying the Incarnation
4 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in youis greater than the one who is in the world. 5 They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit[a] of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
God’s Love and Ours
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God.16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
19 We love because he first loved us. 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen,cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
1 John 5:1-21
Faith in the Incarnate Son of God
5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, 4 for everyone born of God overcomesthe world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.7 For there are three that testify: 8 the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. 9 We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar,because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
16 If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that. 17 All wrongdoing is sin,and there is sin that does not lead to death.
18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. 20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
