|1 John 2:5|
5 But whoever keeps his word [obeys the Lord's commands spoken to him], truly the love of God is perfected in him;1 by this we know that we are in him. [Anyone who claims to be in Christ when they are not crucified is taking His name in vain; or doing anything while stating you do it in His name or in the name of Jesus is also taking His name in vain.]
|1 John 4:12|
12 No man has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and his love is perfected in us. [Jesus Christ, who was a part of God from the beginning, reveals God through himself. To see Jesus revealed in your heart, is to see God. Jesus is the image and substance of the invisible God. Col 1:15.]
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts2 by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height [of His love];
19 So to know the love of Christ, which exceeds all knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, [From the Word of the Lord within: "Hope releases the power of God to change you." What hope? The true hope: the hope to become pure and sin free, to be translated into the kingdom while still on earth, and to enter union with Christ and the Father.]
|John 17:26 |
26 And I have declared to them your name, and will declare it, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them."6
