God's Love Revealed

10 His love is seen in this--not in our having loved God, but in his loving us and sending his Son to be an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God loved us thus, we, surely, ought to love one another. 12 No human eyes have ever seen God, yet, if we love one another, God remains in union with us, and his love attains its perfection in us.
