Verses Part 3
For He rescued us from the domain of darkness,
and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation,
As those who have been chosen of God,
holy and beloved, put on a heart of
compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;
We will not hide them from their children,
but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,
and the wonders that he has done.
1 John 3:16-18
By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us,
and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.
But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need,
yet closes his heart (to him), how does God’s love abide in him?
Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
