1 John 4:7-1 John 5:4 - God's Love Revealed

7 Beloved, let us love one another; because love is of God, and every one that loves has been begotten of God, and knows God. 8 He that loves not never knew God; because God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God in us, that God hath sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we may live through Him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son, to be a propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever beheld God. If we love one another, God abideth in us, and His love has been perfected in us.

13 In this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He hath given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have beheld, and testify, that the Father hath sent the Son, as Savior of the world. 15 Whosoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in Him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love which God hath in us. God is love, and he that abides in love abides in God, and God abideth in him.

17 In this has love been made perfect with us, that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, even so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment; and he who fears is not made perfect in love. 19 We love, because He first loved us.

20 If anyone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God Whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from Him, that he who loves God loves his brother also.

1 Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been begotten of God; and every one who loves Him Who begat loves him also that has been begotten of Him. 2 In this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and do His commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome; 4 because all that has been begotten of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith.
