Children of God Love One Another

3See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and [such] we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.G1492G4217G26G3962G1325G2254G2443G2564G5043G2316G1223G5124G2889G1097G2248G3756G3754G1097G846G3756 2Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is.G27G3568G2070G5043G2316G2532G5319G3768G5319G5101G2071G1161G1492G3754G1437G5319G2071G3664G846G3754G3700G846G2531G2076 3And everyone who has this hope [fixed] on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.G2532G3956G2192G5026G1680G1909G846G48G1438G2531G1565G2076G53 4Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.G3956G4160G266G4160G458G2532G458G2532G266G2076G458 5And you know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.G2532G1492G3754G1565G5319G2443G142G2257G266G2532G1722G846G2076G3756G266 6No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him.G3956G3306G1722G846G264G3756G3956G264G3708G3756G3708G846G3761G1097G846 7Little children, let no one deceive you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous;G5040G4105G3367G4105G5209G4160G1343G2076G1342G2531G1565G2076G1342 8the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, that He might destroy the works of the devil.G4160G266G2076G1537G1228G3754G1228G264G575G746G1519G5124G5207G2316G5319G2443G3089G2041G1228 9No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.G3956G1080G1537G2316G4160G3756G266G3754G846G4690G3306G1722G846G2532G3756G1410G264G3754G1080G1537G2316 10By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.G1722G5129G5043G2316G2076G5318G2532G5043G1228G3956G4160G3361G1343G2076G3756G1537G2316G2532G25G3361G846G80 11For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another;G3754G3778G2076G31G3739G191G575G746G2443G25G240 12not as Cain, [who] was of the evil one, and slew his brother. And for what reason did he slay him? Because his deeds were evil, and his brother's were righteous.G3756G2531G2535G2258G1537G4190G2532G4969G846G80G2532G5484G5101G4969G846G3754G846G2041G2258G4190G1161G846G80G1342 13Do not marvel, brethren, if the world hates you.G2296G3361G3450G80G1487G2889G3404G5209 14We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.G1492G3754G2249G3327G1537G2288G1519G2222G3754G25G80G25G3361G80G3306G1722G2288 15Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.G3956G3404G846G80G2076G443G2532G1492G3754G3756G3956G443G2192G166G2222G3306G1722G846 16We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.G1722G5129G1097G26G3754G1565G5087G846G5590G5228G2257G2532G2249G3784G5087G5590G5228G80 17But whoever has the world's goods, and beholds his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?G1161G3739G302G2192G2889G979G2532G2334G846G80G2192G5532G2532G2808G846G4698G575G846G4459G3306G26G2316G1722G846 18Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.G3450G5040G25G3361G25G3056G3366G1100G235G2041G2532G225 19We shall know by this that we are of the truth, and shall assure our heart before Him,G2532G1722G5129G1097G3754G2070G1537G225G2532G3982G2257G2588G1715G846 20in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.G3754G1437G2257G2588G2607G3754G2316G2076G3187G2257G2588G2532G1097G3956 21Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God;G27G3362G2257G2588G2607G2257G3362G2192G3954G4314G2316 22and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.G2532G3739G1437G154G2983G3844G846G3754G5083G846G1785G2532G4160G701G846G1799 23And this is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.G2532G3778G2076G846G1785G2443G4100G3686G846G5207G2424G5547G2532G25G240G2531G1325G2254G1785 24And the one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And we know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.G2532G5083G846G1785G3306G1722G846G2532G846G1722G846G2532G1722G5129G1097G3754G3306G1722G2254G1537G4151G3739G1325G2254
