Bible: 1 John 3:14-17

3:14 We know that 1  we have crossed over 2  from death to life 3  because 4  we love our fellow Christians. 5  The one who does not love remains in death. 6  3:15 Everyone who hates his fellow Christian 7  is a murderer, 8  and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing 9  in him. 3:16 We have come to know love by this: 10  that Jesus 11  laid down 12  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 13  and sees his fellow Christian 14  in need and shuts off his compassion against him, how can the love of God 15  reside 16  in such a person? 17
