1 John 3:1-3

Goodspeed(i) 1 Think what love the Father has had for us, in letting us be called God's children, for that is what we are. This is why the world does not know what we are—because it has never come to know him. 2 Dear friends, we are God's children now; it has not yet been disclosed what we are to be. We know that if he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 And everyone who possesses this hope in him tries to make himself as pure as he is.
