Hey – I’ve been reading John’s letters this morning (backwards for some reason). Having been reminded of the significance of Christ’s perfect life lived for us (current reading Worship, Community and the Triune God of Grace – Torrance) I find this amazing:

By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him. And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us. 1 John 3: 19-24
