1John 3
New Living Translation
3See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don't recognize that we are God's children because they don't know him.G1492G4217G26G3962G1325G2254G2443G2564G5043G2316G1223G5124G2889G1097G2248G3756G3754G1097G846G3756 2Dear friends, we are already God's children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.G27G3568G2070G5043G2316G2532G5319G3768G5319G5101G2071G1161G1492G3754G1437G5319G2071G3664G846G3754G3700G846G2531G2076 3And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.G2532G3956G2192G5026G1680G1909G846G48G1438G2531G1565G2076G53 4Everyone who sins is breaking God's law, for all sin is contrary to the law of God.G3956G4160G266G4160G458G2532G458G2532G266G2076G458 5And you know that Jesus came to take away our sins, and there is no sin in him.G2532G1492G3754G1565G5319G2443G142G2257G266G2532G1722G846G2076G3756G266 6Anyone who continues to live in him will not sin. But anyone who keeps on sinning does not know him or understand who he is.G3956G3306G1722G846G264G3756G3956G264G3708G3756G3708G846G3761G1097G846 7Dear children, don't let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous.G5040G4105G3367G4105G5209G4160G1343G2076G1342G2531G1565G2076G1342 8But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil.G4160G266G2076G1537G1228G3754G1228G264G575G746G1519G5124G5207G2316G5319G2443G3089G2041G1228 9Those who have been born into God's family do not make a practice of sinning, because God's life is in them. So they can't keep on sinning, because they are children of God.G3956G1080G1537G2316G4160G3756G266G3754G846G4690G3306G1722G846G2532G3756G1410G264G3754G1080G1537G2316 10So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.G1722G5129G5043G2316G2076G5318G2532G5043G1228G3956G4160G3361G1343G2076G3756G1537G2316G2532G25G3361G846G80

Love One Another

11This is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another.G3754G3778G2076G31G3739G191G575G746G2443G25G240 12We must not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and killed his brother. And why did he kill him? Because Cain had been doing what was evil, and his brother had been doing what was righteous.G3756G2531G2535G2258G1537G4190G2532G4969G846G80G2532G5484G5101G4969G846G3754G846G2041G2258G4190G1161G846G80G1342 13So don't be surprised, dear brothers and sisters, if the world hates you.G2296G3361G3450G80G1487G2889G3404G5209 14If we love our Christian brothers and sisters, it proves that we have passed from death to life. But a person who has no love is still dead.G1492G3754G2249G3327G1537G2288G1519G2222G3754G25G80G25G3361G80G3306G1722G2288 15Anyone who hates another brother or sister is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don't have eternal life within them.G3956G3404G846G80G2076G443G2532G1492G3754G3756G3956G443G2192G166G2222G3306G1722G846 16We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.G1722G5129G1097G26G3754G1565G5087G846G5590G5228G2257G2532G2249G3784G5087G5590G5228G80 17If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God's love be in that person?G1161G3739G302G2192G2889G979G2532G2334G846G80G2192G5532G2532G2808G846G4698G575G846G4459G3306G26G2316G1722G846 18Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.G3450G5040G25G3361G25G3056G3366G1100G235G2041G2532G225 19Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.G2532G1722G5129G1097G3754G2070G1537G225G2532G3982G2257G2588G1715G846 20Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.G3754G1437G2257G2588G2607G3754G2316G2076G3187G2257G2588G2532G1097G3956 21Dear friends, if we don't feel guilty, we can come to God with bold confidence.G27G3362G2257G2588G2607G2257G3362G2192G3954G4314G2316 22And we will receive from him whatever we ask because we obey him and do the things that please him.G2532G3739G1437G154G2983G3844G846G3754G5083G846G1785G2532G4160G701G846G1799 23And this is his commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us.G2532G3778G2076G846G1785G2443G4100G3686G846G5207G2424G5547G2532G25G240G2531G1325G2254G1785 24Those who obey God's commandments remain in fellowship with him, and he with them. And we know he lives in us because the Spirit he gave us lives in us.G2532G5083G846G1785G3306G1722G846G2532G846G1722G846G2532G1722G5129G1097G3754G3306G1722G2254G1537G4151G3739G1325G2254
