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.1 John 4: 7-8 (NIV)
Love comes from God; it flows from His heart to us. Since God is love, when we accept Him, we grow in love. Knowing God teaches us to love. You can’t know God if you don’t love. God loved the world so much that he gave us Jesus.
We love because he first loved us. God so loved the world He gave us Jesus.John 4-19
God gave us His one and only Son; so that we could have eternal life.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.John 3:16
Jesus loves us like God the Father loved Him.
Just as the Father has loved Me, I also have loved you;John 15:9a
Jesus came to save the lost, to heal the sick, to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.(Mark 10:45)
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”Luke 19:10 (NIV)
On the night He was betrayed, Jesus gave his disciples a new commandment.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
For God is love. 💖
