1 John 3:21-24
KJV 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
WEB 21 Beloved, if our hearts don’t condemn us, we have boldness toward God; 22 and whatever we ask, we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do the things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 This is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, even as he commanded.24 He who keeps his commandments remains in him, and he in him. By this we know that he remains in us, by the Spirit which he gave us.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

21 Our flesh will always pull us down but God will lift us up if we are His, Christ died for our sins which means God has forgiven us and that they cant overpower us we ust got to let God break thru our temptations and help us stand when we do fall.

22 This is not saying that if we do what God wants of us then He will give us anything people misuse this verse to say that, for us to keep God’s commands means for us to have a change of heart when we have this then we will want to keep in His will and see what He has given us all as blessings. When we have this change our heart and seek Him then we wouldn’t ask for anything outside His will for our lives.

23 We are to love one another that means with what we want it should not cause others to go without slip or stumble but what we want should be bale to allow us to help others the best if we get it, we are to consider how does praying for this help me help others and show love.

24 We are not saved by keeping commandments we are saved by grace but sin separates us from the Lord so for us to walk with Him means we have to turn from sin all the time.
