English Standard Version
1 John 3:1-2
what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called
children of God; and so we are. The reason why
the world does not know us is that
it did not know him.
Beloved, we are
now, and what we will be
has not yet appeared; but we know that
when he appears
we shall be like him, because
we shall see him as he is.
1 John 3:1-2 In-Context
See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.
Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.
You know that he appeared to take away sins, and in him there is no sin.
No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him.
