The First Letter of Saint John 4: 7-10
|Most beloved, let us love one another. For love is of God. And everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
|Whoever does not love, does not know God. For God is love.
|The love of God was made apparent to us in this way: that God sent his only-begotten Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
|In this is love: not as if we had loved God, but that he first loved us, and so he sent his Son as a propitiation for our sins.
