Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7)

The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:8)

By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. (1 John 4:9)

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1 John 4:11)
