Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:1 -

See what great love[fn] the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children ​— ​and we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it didn’t know him.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:2 -

Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when he appears,[fn] we will be like him because we will see him as he is.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:3 -

And everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself just as he is pure.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:4 -

Everyone who commits sin practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:5 -

You know that he was revealed so that he might take away sins,[fn] and there is no sin in him.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:6 -

Everyone who remains in him does not sin;[fn] everyone who sins[fn] has not seen him or known him.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:7 -

Children, let no one deceive you. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:8 -

The one who commits[fn] sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose: to destroy the devil’s works.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:9 -

Everyone who has been born of God does not sin,[fn] because his seed remains in him; he is not able to sin,[fn] because he has been born of God.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:10 -

This is how God’s children and the devil’s children become obvious. Whoever does not do what is right is not of God, especially the one who does not love his brother or sister.

Love in Action

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:11 -

For this is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another,

Everyone who hates his brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:16 -

This is how we have come to know love: He laid down his life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:17 -

If anyone has this world’s goods and sees a fellow believer[fn] in need but withholds compassion from him ​— ​how does God’s love reside in him?

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:18 -

Little children, let us not love in word or speech, but in action and in truth.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:19 -

This is how we will know that we belong to the truth and will reassure our hearts before him

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:20 -

whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows all things.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:21 -

Dear friends, if our hearts don’t condemn us, we have confidence before God

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:22 -

and receive whatever we ask from him because we keep his commands and do what is pleasing in his sight.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:23 -

Now this is his command: that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another as he commanded us.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:24 -

The one who keeps his commands remains in him, and he in him. And the way we know that he remains in us is from the Spirit he has given us.
