Wedding New Testament Reading 4

A reading from the First letter of St John 3: 18-24

Little children,
let us not love in word or speech,
but in deed and in truth.

By this we shall know that we are of the truth,
and reassure our hearts before him
whenever our hearts condemn us;
for God is greater than our hearts,
and he knows everything.

Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us,
we have confidence before God;
and we receive from him whatever we ask,
because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.

And this is his commandment,
that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ
and love one another, just as he has commanded us.
All who keep his commandments abide in him, and he in them.
And by this we know that he abides in us,
by the Spirit which he has given us.

This is the word of the Lord.
