Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:16 - By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:17 - But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:18 - My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:19 - And by this we know[fn] that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:21 - Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.

Unchecked Copy Box1Jo 3:22 - And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
