And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected : hereby know we that we are in him.
In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
Herein is our love made perfect , that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is , so are we in this world.
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
