Bible: 1 John 4:8-11

4:8 The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1  4:9 By this 2  the love of God 3  is revealed in us: 4  that God has sent his one and only 5  Son into the world so that we may live through him. 4:10 In this 6  is love: not that 7  we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice 8  for our sins.

4:11 Dear friends, if God so loved us, then 9  we also ought to love one another. 10
