1 John 4:7-14

God Is Love

7Beloved a  let us love one another, for love is from God, and b  whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 c  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because d  God is love. 9In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that e  God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10In this is love, f  not that we have loved God g  but that he loved us and sent his Son to be h  the propitiation for our sins. 11Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 i  No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and j  his love is perfected in us.

13 k  By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14And l  we have seen and testify that m  the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of n  the world.
