Children of God Love One Another

1 See how R106 F13 great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children R107 of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it R108 did not know Him. 2 Beloved, R109 now we are children R110 of God, and it R111 has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, R112 we will be like R113 Him, because we will see R114 Him just as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope R115 fixed on Him purifies R116 himself, just as He is pure.

4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin R117 is lawlessness. 5 You know that He appeared R118 in order to take R119 away sins; and in R120 Him there is no sin. 6 No one who abides in Him sins; R121 no one who sins has seen Him or knows R122 F14 Him. 7 Little R123 children, make sure no one deceives R124 you; the R125 one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8 the one who practices sin is of R126 the devil; for the devil has F15 sinned from the beginning. The R127 Son of God appeared R128 for this purpose, to R129 destroy the works of the devil. 9 No one who is born R130 F16 of God practices R131 sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born F16 of God. 10 By this the children R132 of God and the children R133 of the devil are obvious: anyone F17 who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does R134 not love his brother. R135

11 For R136 this is the message which R137 you have heard from the beginning, that R138 we should love one another; 12 not as Cain, R139 who was of the R140 evil one and slew his brother. And for what reason did he slay him? Because his R141 deeds were evil, and his brother's were righteous.

13 Do not be surprised, brethren, if the R142 world hates you. 14 We know that we have passed R143 out of death into life, because R144 we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death. 15 Everyone who hates R145 his brother is a murderer; and you know that no R146 murderer has eternal life abiding in him. 16 We know love by this, that He R147 laid down His life for us; and we R148 ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. R149 17 But whoever R150 has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need and closes R151 his heart F18 against F19 him, how R152 does the love of God abide in him? 18 Little R153 children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. R154 19 We will know by this that we are of R155 the truth, and will assure F20 our heart before Him 20 in F21 whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things. 21 Beloved, R156 if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence R157 before F22 God; 22 and whatever R158 we ask we receive from Him, because we keep R159 His commandments and do the R160 things that are pleasing in His sight.

23 This is His commandment, that we believe R161 F23 in the R162 name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He R163 commanded F24 us. 24 The one who keeps R164 His commandments abides R165 in Him, and He in him. We R166 know by this that He R167 abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
