Our dependence is on the life of the Son of God, moment by moment, his life is in us then, "this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith."

John has brought before us,
o First, the theme of fellowship of Christ, maintaining fellowship; then
o Maintaining truth,
o Maintaining righteousness,
o Maintaining love, and, now, he concludes with the theme of
o Maintaining assurance, or confidence.
