Bible: 1 Jn 4:7-13
God is Love
4:7 Dear friends, let us love one another, because 1 love is from God, and everyone who loves 2 has been fathered 3 by God and knows God. 4:8 The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 4 4:9 By this 5 the love of God 6 is revealed in us: 7 that God has sent his one and only 8 Son into the world so that we may live through him. 4:10 In this 9 is love: not that 10 we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice 11 for our sins.
4:11 Dear friends, if God so loved us, then 12 we also ought to love one another. 13 4:12 No one has seen God at any time. 14 If we love one another, God resides 15 in us, and his love is perfected in us. 16 4:13 By this 17 we know that we reside in God 18 and he in us: in that he has given us of his Spirit. 19
