1 John 4:7-14
God Is Love7Beloved alet us love one another, for love is from God, and bwhoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 cAnyone who does not love does not know God, because dGod is love. 9In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that eGod sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10In this is love, fnot that we have loved God gbut that he loved us and sent his Son to be hthe propitiation for our sins. 11Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 iNo one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and jhis love is perfected in us. 13 kBy this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14And lwe have seen and testify that mthe Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of nthe world.
