We know we love God's children if we love God and obey his commandments.
Loving God means keeping his commandments, and really, that isn't difficult.
For every child of God defeats this evil world by trusting Christ to give the victory.
And the ones who win this battle against the world are the ones who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
