Put on, therefore, as elect and beloved saints of God, hearts of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering,
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that every one believing in him may not perish but have eternal life.
but God who is rich in mercy, on account of his great love with which he loved us,??5 even when we were dead in sins he made us alive with Christ,??y grace are you saved,
Wherefore he says, Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.
For God is my witness, how much I desire you all with the tender affections of Christ Jesus.
If therefore there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort in love, if any participation of the Spirit, if any affections and compassions,
And whoever has the goods of the world and sees his brother have need, and withholds his compassions from him, how continues the love of God in him?
The love of God was manifested to us in this; that God has sent his only Son into the world that we may live through him.
