The Father’s Love – 1 John 3

Bible

1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath  bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God:  therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him  not. 

1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth  not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he  shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he  is. 

1 John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth  himself, even as he is pure. 

1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth  sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of  the law. 

1 John 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take  away our sins; and in him is no sin. 

1 John 3:6 Whosoever  abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen  him, neither known him. 

1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man  deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even  as he is righteous. 

1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the  devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this  purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might  destroy the works of the devil. 

1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of  God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and  he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 

1 John 3:10 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. 

1 John 3:11 For this is the message  that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one  another. 

1 John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one,  and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because  his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.  

1 John 3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.  

1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life,  because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his  brother abideth in death. 

1 John 3:15 Whosoever hateth his  brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath  eternal life abiding in him. 

1 John 3:16 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. 

1 John 3:17 But  whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have  need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him,  how dwelleth the love of God in him? 

1 John 3:18 My little  children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in  deed and in truth. 

1 John 3:19 And hereby we know that we are  of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 

1 John 3:20  For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart,  and knoweth all things. 

1 John 3:21 Beloved, if our heart  condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.   

1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because  we keep his commandments, and do those things that are  pleasing in his sight. 

1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment,  That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ,  and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 

1 John 3:24  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.  KJV
