God's Love and Ours

7 Dear friends, let us love one another,1 for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God2 and knows God.3 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.4 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Sona5 into the world that we might live through him.6 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us7 and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice forb our sins.8 11 Dear friends,9 since God so loved us,10 we also ought to love one another.11 12 No one has ever seen God;12 but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.13 13 We know14 that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.15 14 And we have seen and testify16 that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.17 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God,18 God lives in him and he in God.19 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love.20 Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.21
