Children of God

28 And now, little children, abide in him, so that twhen he appears uwe may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his vcoming.


No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; nno one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him.


24 rWhoever keeps his commandments abides in God,1 and God2 in him. And sby this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.


13 sBy this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.


16 So xwe have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. yGod is love, and zwhoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
