1 John 2:12; 1 John 3:1; 1 John 4:5; 1 John 4:9
I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name's sake.
See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them.
By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.
