Lee Sommitz (Paraphrase)
1 John 2:26-29
26 I wrote these things to warn you that many will seek to deceive you. 27 You, however, have the treasure of God’s anointing so you aren’t dependent on the teaching of other men. This anointing by God’s Spirit teaches you truth in every area of life. Just as it has taught you so far, choose to stay in close communion with God (to your benefit) the rest of your lives. 28 Yes beloved children, sustain this close communion so that when He comes back none of you will have cause for embarrassment or shame, but rejoicing and confidence instead. 29 Just as you know how righteous God is, you know that those who are genuinely born of Him will have His righteousness increasing in their lives.
