1 John 2:28-3:3
New American Standard Bible
28 Now, (A)little children, remain in Him, so that when He (B)appears, we may have (C)confidence and (D)not [a]draw back from Him in shame [b]at His (E)coming. 29 If you know that (F)He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness also (G)has been born of Him.
Children of God Love One Another
3 See [c](H)how great a love the Father has given us, that we would be called (I)children of God; and in fact we are. For this reason the world does not know us: because (J)it did not know Him. 2 (K)Beloved, now we are (L)children of God, and (M)it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He (N)appears, we will be (O)like Him, because we will (P)see Him just as He is. 3 And everyone who has this (Q)hope set on Him (R)purifies himself, just as He is pure.
