And in this we know that we have known Him, if we keep His commandments.
If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love.
In this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He hath given us of His Spirit.
He who has My commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves Me; and he that loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him."
Ye are My friends, if ye do what I command you.
Finally, then, brethren, we beseech and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that, as ye received from us how ye ought to walk, and to please God??ven as ye also are walking??hat ye abound more and more;
and, having been made perfect, He became the Author of eternal life to all who obey Him;
He who says, "I have known Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him;
We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He that loves not abides in death.
Hereby we shall know that we are of the truth, and we shall assure our heart before Him;
and whatsoever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments, and do the things that are pleasing before Him.
Happy are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.
And this is the eternal life, that they know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom Thou didst send.
because it is the God Who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," Who shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
