Bible: 1 John 3:13-18

3:13 Therefore do not be surprised, brothers and sisters, 1  if the world hates you. 2  3:14 We know that 3  we have crossed over 4  from death to life 5  because 6  we love our fellow Christians. 7  The one who does not love remains in death. 8  3:15 Everyone who hates his fellow Christian 9  is a murderer, 10  and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing 11  in him. 3:16 We have come to know love by this: 12  that Jesus 13  laid down 14  his life for us; thus we ought to lay down our lives for our fellow Christians. 3:17 But whoever has the world’s possessions 15  and sees his fellow Christian 16  in need and shuts off his compassion against him, how can the love of God 17  reside 18  in such a person? 19 

3:18 Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and truth. 20
