See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1 John 3:1
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.

and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the LORD rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16
