“….. let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God.

….. anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

….. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

….. since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. 

…… God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. 

….. We love each other because he loved us first.

…. if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?”


1 John 4:7-20 (NLT)
