Children of God Love One Another

1 See a1how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called 2children of God ; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because 3it did not know Him. 2 4Beloved, now we are 5children of God, and 6it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He 7appears, we will be 8like Him, because we will 9see Him just as He is. 3 And everyone who has this 10hope fixed on Him 11purifies himself, just as He is pure. 4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness ; and 12sin is lawlessness. 5 You know that He 13appeared in order to 14take away sins ; and 15in Him there is no sin. 6 No one who abides in Him 16sins ; no one who sins has seen Him or b17knows Him. 7 18Little children, make sure no one 19deceives you; 20the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous ; 8 the one who practices sin is 21of the devil ; for the devil chas sinned from the beginning. 22The Son of God 23appeared for this purpose, 24to destroy the works of the devil. 9 No one who is d25born of God 26practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is eborn of God.
