1 John 3:1-3

1See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,[a] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

One response to “1 John 3:1-3

  1. It is love, not possessiveness, that caused God to allow us to be called His children. He takes us as His own, and allows us to be called His. He accepts us, claims us, and allows us to live under His righteousness and power.

    His Son is pure. Without sin. We are to live like Him. We are to strive every day to be less like our selfish selves, and more like the Christ.
