Musings on 1 John

1 John 3
abide in Him, rest, be still
deep-rooted presence surrounding me
the Father has given me love
how then shall I live?
live like God for God is love
purify yourself for God is pure
abide in Him who is without sin
abide, be birthed from, filled with righteousness
Love, lay down your life.
Love, abide in the purified heart.
Love, gift of God, give to others.
Love, do not condemn our hearts this day.
Abide in love which is God for God is love.
Abide in us, o un-created Creator.
Abide in us, o Son of sacrifice.
Abide in us, o God-sent Spirit.
Abide in me, o love divine.
