Children of God Love One Another

1 John 3:16-24,

16 We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

17 But whoever has the world’s goods, and beholds his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? 

18 Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. 

19 We shall know by this that we are of the truth, and shall assure our heart before Him, 

20 in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. 

21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; 

22 and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. 

23 And this is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. 

24 And the one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And we know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.

Do you want to do the will of God? Do you want to walk in the Presence of God? Do you want to know your prayers will be answered? Bear one another’s burdens.
