Bible: 1 John 2:28-3:3

Children of God

2:28 And now, little children, remain 1  in him, 2  so that when 3  he appears we may have confidence and not shrink away from him in shame when he comes back. 4  2:29 If you know that he is righteous, you also know 5  that everyone who practices righteousness has been fathered 6  by him.

3:1 (See what sort of love the Father has given to us: that 7  we should be called God’s children – and indeed 8  we are! 9  For this reason 10  the world does not know us: because it did not know him. 11  3:2 Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be 12  has not yet been revealed. We 13  know that 14  whenever 15  it 16  is revealed 17  we will be like him, because 18  we will see him just as he is. 19  3:3 And everyone who has this hope focused 20  on him purifies 21  himself, just as Jesus 22  is pure). 23
