A word in season – John



1 John 3:1-3

NKJV

3 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.


Father, there is so much more here for us than we can get from a quick reading. Help us to take our time with your Word and grow in our love for the Lord Jesus!

  1. It’s a good Word, Maria!
    I think “the world does not know us, because it did not know Him” means that we will be so full of Him that the world will react to us as it did to Him. May we always react to them as Jesus did.
