(C)This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that (D)God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. (E)If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we (F)lie and (G)do not practice the truth; but if we (H)walk in the Light as (I)He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and (J)the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

(J)The Son of God (K)appeared for this purpose, (L)to destroy the works of the devil. No one who has been (M)born of God practices sin, because His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin continually, because he has been born of God.
