1 Thessalonians 1:4
4 For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you.
17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.”
1 John 3:1-2
1 See what love the Father has given 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. 2 Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is.
