1 John 2:5; 1 John 2:15; 1 John 3:1; 1 John 3:16-17; 1 John 4:7; 1 John 4:9-10; 1 John 4:12; 1 John 4:16; 1 John 4:18; 1 John 5:3
But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected : hereby know we that we are in him.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Behold , what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
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.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment . He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
