But if anyone obeys His word, God’s love is truly made complete in him.
May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
We know that we have come to know Him if we obey His commands. – “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to Him and make our home with Him.” – No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him. Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. – Love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.
