Recap and Closing

 (1Jn 2:1 HCSB)  My little children, I am writing you these things so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father–Jesus Christ the righteous One.

 (1Jn 2:2 HCSB)  He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for those of the whole world.

 (1Jn 2:2 AMP)  And He [that same Jesus Himself] is the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins, and not for ours alone but also for [the sins of] the whole world.

 (1Jn 2:3 HCSB)  This is how we are sure that we have come to know Him: by keeping His commands.

 (1Jn 2:3 AMP)  And this is how we may discern [daily, by experience] that we are coming to know Him [to perceive, recognize, understand, and become better acquainted with Him]: if we keep (bear in mind, observe, practice) His teachings (precepts, commandments).

 (1Jn 2:4 HCSB)  The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” without keeping His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

 (1Jn 2:5 HCSB)  But whoever keeps His word, truly in him the love of God is perfected. This is how we know we are in Him:

 (1Jn 2:5 AMP)  But he who keeps (treasures) His Word [who bears in mind His precepts, who observes His message in its entirety], truly in him has the love of and for God been perfected (completed, reached maturity). By this we may perceive (know, recognize, and be sure) that we are in Him:

 (1Jn 2:6 HCSB)  the one who says he remains in Him should walk just as He walked.

 (1Jn 2:7 HCSB)  Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command, but an old command that you have had from the beginning. The old command is the message you have heard.

 (Joh 13:34 HCSB)  “I give you a new commandment: love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another.

 (1Jn 2:8 HCSB)  Yet I am writing you a new command, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.

 (Joh 14:21 HCSB)  The one who has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me. And the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father. I also will love him and will reveal Myself to him.”

 (1Jn 2:15-16 HCSB)  Do not love the world or the things that belong to the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. Because everything that belongs to the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride in one’s lifestyle–is not from the Father, but is from the world.

 (1Jn 2:16 AMP)  For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]–these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself].

 (Mat 28:18 AMP)  Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.

 (Mat 28:19 AMP)  Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

 (Mat 28:20 AMP)  Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).

 We are to go about in our life making disciples and being disciples. God Bless and Keep You till we meet again!
