71Beloved, let us 2loveoneanother, for love is from God; and 3everyone who loves is a4born of God and 5knowsGod.
The one who does not love does not knowGod, for 6God is love.
By this the love of God was manifestedb7in us, that 8God has sent His conlybegottenSon into the worldso that we might livethrough Him.
In this is love, 9not that we lovedGod, but that 10He loved us and sent His Son to be 11the propitiation for our sins.
1112Beloved, ifGodsoloved us, 13we alsoought to loveoneanother.
1214Noone has seenGod at anytime; if we loveoneanother, Godabides in us, and His 15love is perfected in us.
