1 John 4:7-16

RSV 7 Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. NIV 7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. RSV 8 He who does not love does not know God; for God is love. NIV 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. RSV 9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. NIV 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. RSV 10 In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins. NIV 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. RSV 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. NIV 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. RSV 12 No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. NIV 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. RSV 13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit. NIV 13 We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. RSV 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world. NIV 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. RSV 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. NIV 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. RSV 16 So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. NIV 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
