Bible: 1 John 3:16-18

3:16 We have come to know love by this: 1  that Jesus 2  laid down 3  his life for us; thus we ought to lay down our lives for our fellow Christians. 3:17 But whoever has the world’s possessions 4  and sees his fellow Christian 5  in need and shuts off his compassion against him, how can the love of God 6  reside 7  in such a person? 8 

3:18 Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and truth. 9
