"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is
love. 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. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us
and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear
friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one
another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,
God lives in us and His love is made complete in us."
1 John 4:7-12
