My dear children, let us love not only with words and with our lips, but in truth and in deed.
Then we shall know that we are of the truth and we may calm our conscience in his presence. Every time it reproaches us, let us say: God is greater than our conscience, and he knows everything. When our conscience does not condemn us, dear friends we may have complete confidence in God. Then whatever we ask we shall receive, since we keep his commands and do what please him.
His command is that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and that we love one another, as he has commanded us. Who keeps his commands remains in God and God in him. It is by the Spirit God has given us that we know he lives in us.
