1John 3
New Revised Standard Version
3See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.G1492G4217G26G3962G1325G2254G2443G2564G5043G2316G1223G5124G2889G1097G2248G3756G3754G1097G846G3756 2Beloved, we are God's children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is.G27G3568G2070G5043G2316G2532G5319G3768G5319G5101G2071G1161G1492G3754G1437G5319G2071G3664G846G3754G3700G846G2531G2076 3And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.G2532G3956G2192G5026G1680G1909G846G48G1438G2531G1565G2076G53 4Everyone who commits sin is guilty of lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.G3956G4160G266G4160G458G2532G458G2532G266G2076G458 5You know that he was revealed to take away sins, and in him there is no sin.G2532G1492G3754G1565G5319G2443G142G2257G266G2532G1722G846G2076G3756G266 6No one who abides in him sins; no one who sins has either seen him or known him.G3956G3306G1722G846G264G3756G3956G264G3708G3756G3708G846G3761G1097G846 7Little children, let no one deceive you. Everyone who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.G5040G4105G3367G4105G5209G4160G1343G2076G1342G2531G1565G2076G1342 8Everyone who commits sin is a child of the devil; for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.G4160G266G2076G1537G1228G3754G1228G264G575G746G1519G5124G5207G2316G5319G2443G3089G2041G1228 9Those who have been born of God do not sin, because God's seed abides in them; they cannot sin, because they have been born of God.G3956G1080G1537G2316G4160G3756G266G3754G846G4690G3306G1722G846G2532G3756G1410G264G3754G1080G1537G2316 10The children of God and the children of the devil are revealed in this way: all who do not do what is right are not from God, nor are those who do not love their brothers and sisters.G1722G5129G5043G2316G2076G5318G2532G5043G1228G3956G4160G3361G1343G2076G3756G1537G2316G2532G25G3361G846G80

Love One Another

11For this is the message you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.G3754G3778G2076G31G3739G191G575G746G2443G25G240 12We must not be like Cain who was from the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother's righteous.G3756G2531G2535G2258G1537G4190G2532G4969G846G80G2532G5484G5101G4969G846G3754G846G2041G2258G4190G1161G846G80G1342 13Do not be astonished, brothers and sisters, that the world hates you.G2296G3361G3450G80G1487G2889G3404G5209 14We know that we have passed from death to life because we love one another. Whoever does not love abides in death.G1492G3754G2249G3327G1537G2288G1519G2222G3754G25G80G25G3361G80G3306G1722G2288 15All who hate a brother or sister are murderers, and you know that murderers do not have eternal life abiding in them.G3956G3404G846G80G2076G443G2532G1492G3754G3756G3956G443G2192G166G2222G3306G1722G846 16We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us—and we ought to lay down our lives for one another.G1722G5129G1097G26G3754G1565G5087G846G5590G5228G2257G2532G2249G3784G5087G5590G5228G80 17How does God's love abide in anyone who has the world's goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help?G1161G3739G302G2192G2889G979G2532G2334G846G80G2192G5532G2532G2808G846G4698G575G846G4459G3306G26G2316G1722G846 18Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.G3450G5040G25G3361G25G3056G3366G1100G235G2041G2532G225 19And by this we will know that we are from the truth and will reassure our hearts before himG2532G1722G5129G1097G3754G2070G1537G225G2532G3982G2257G2588G1715G846 20whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.G3754G1437G2257G2588G2607G3754G2316G2076G3187G2257G2588G2532G1097G3956 21Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have boldness before God;G27G3362G2257G2588G2607G2257G3362G2192G3954G4314G2316 22and we receive from him whatever we ask, because we obey his commandments and do what pleases him.G2532G3739G1437G154G2983G3844G846G3754G5083G846G1785G2532G4160G701G846G1799 23And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.G2532G3778G2076G846G1785G2443G4100G3686G846G5207G2424G5547G2532G25G240G2531G1325G2254G1785 24All who obey his commandments abide in him, and he abides in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit that he has given us.G2532G5083G846G1785G3306G1722G846G2532G846G1722G846G2532G1722G5129G1097G3754G3306G1722G2254G1537G4151G3739G1325G2254
