Behold, what manner of love
The Father hath bestowed upon us,
That we should be called the sons of God:
Therefore the world knoweth us not,
Because it knew him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
And it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
But we know that, when he shall appear,
We shall be like him;
For we shall see him as he is.
And every man that hath this hope in him
Purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
I John 3:1-3
