1 John 3:1-3
1 See what love the Father has given 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 Beloved, we
are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed.
What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him,
for we will see him as he is.
3 And all who
have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
