Walking in Truth and Love

(A)I rejoiced greatly to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as we were commanded by the Father. And now I ask you, dear lady—(B)not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but the one we have had from the beginning—(C)that we love one another. And (D)this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just (E)as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it. For (F)many deceivers (G)have gone out into the world, (H)those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, (I)so that you may not lose what we[a] have worked for, but (J)may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, (K)does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching (L)has both the Father and the Son.
