In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
1 John 3:16
We have come to know love by this: that Jesus laid down his life for us; thus we ought to lay down our lives for our fellow Christians.
For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and the regaining of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed,
