Dearly beloved, let us love one another: for charity is of God. And every one that loveth is born of God and knoweth God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God: for God is charity.
By this hath the charity of God appeared towards us, because God hath sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we may live by him.
In this is charity: not as though we had loved God, but because he hath first loved us, and sent his Son to be a propitiation for our sins.
My dearest, if God hath so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abideth in us: and his charity is perfected in us.
In this we know that we abide in him, and he in us: because he hath given us of his spirit.
And we have seen and do testify that the Father hath sent his Son to be the Saviour of the world.
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God.
And we have known and have believed the charity which God hath to us. God is charity: and he that abideth in charity abideth in God, and God in him.
