But 1whoeverhas the world'sgoods, and sees his brother in need and 2closes his aheartbagainst him, 3how does the love of Godabide in him?
184Littlechildren, let us not love with wordor with tongue, but in deed and 5truth.
We will know by this that we are 6of the truth, and will cassure our heartbefore Him
20din whatever our heartcondemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knowsallthings.
217Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have8confidenceebeforeGod;
and 9whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we 10keep His commandments and do11the things that are pleasing in His sight.
23This is His commandment, that we f12believe in 13the name of His SonJesusChrist, and loveoneanother, just as 14He gcommanded us.
The one who 15keeps His commandments16abides in Him, and He in him. 17We know by this that 18He abides in us, by the Spiritwhom He has given us.
