Passage: 1 John 1:5-2:3 (RSV)

1 John 1

5This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all.
6If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth;
7but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
8If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

1 John 2

1My little children, I am writing this to you so that you may not sin; but if any one does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
2and he is the expiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.
3And by this we may be sure that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
