1 Jn 2:25 And this is the promise that he made to us—eternal life.

1 Jn 3:23 And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.

1 Jn 5:4 For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

1 Jn 5:11 And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

1 Jn 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

The center point and therefore the teaching point is that each Christian has victory through the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

And this is the promise

        And this is his commandment

                       And this is the victory

       And this is the testimony

And this is the confidence
