1 John 5:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Overcoming the World

Whoever believes that Jesus is the [a]Christ is [b]born of God, and whoever loves the [c]Father loves the child [d]born of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and [e]observe His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.

1 John 5:1-3 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Overcoming the World

Everyone who believes [with a deep, abiding trust in the fact] that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed) is born of God [that is, reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose], and everyone who loves the Father also loves [a]the child born of Him. By this we know [without any doubt] that we love the children of God: [expressing that love] when we love God and obey His commandments. For the [true] love of God is this: that we habitually keep His commandments and remain focused on His precepts. And His commandments and His precepts are not difficult [to obey].
