Bible: 1 John 4:7-11

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
