1 John 2:27-29 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)
26-28 It is true that I felt I had to write the above about men who would dearly love to lead you astray. Yet I know that the touch of his Spirit never leaves you, and you don’t really need a human teacher. You know that his Spirit teaches you about all things, always telling you the truth and never telling you a lie. So, as he has taught you, live continually in him. Yes, now, little children remember to live continually in him. So that if he were suddenly to reveal himself we should still know exactly where we stand, and should not have to shrink away from his presence.
What it means to be sons of God
29 You all know that God is really good. You may be just as sure that the man who leads a really good life is a true child of God.
