God Is Love

7 1Beloved, let us 2love one another, for love is from God; and 3everyone who loves is 4born of God and 5knows God.
8 The one who does not love does not know God, for 6God is love.
9 By this the love of God was manifested 7in us, that 8God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.
