1 John 3:19-24 - Courage Before God

19 And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 20 For if our heart condemneth us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

21 Beloved, if our heart doth not condemn us, then have we confidence towards God. 22 And whatever we ask, we receive from him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment; That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24 And he that keepeth his commandments, dwelleth in him, and he in him. And by this we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
