Sunday Inspiration: On Love

1 John 4:7-21:

Beloved, let us love one another: for love cometh of God, and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is love.

Herein was that love of God made manifest amongst us, because God sent that his only begotten Son into this world, that we might live through him.Herein is that love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be a reconciliation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfect in us. Hereby know we, that we dwell in him, and he in us: because he hath given us of his Spirit.

And we have seen, and do testify, that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

Whosoever confesseth that Jesus is the Son of God, in him dwelleth God, and he in God. And we have known, and believed the love that God hath in us, God is love, and he that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Herein is that love perfect in us, that we should have boldness in the day of judgment: for as he is, even so are we in this world.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear: for fear hath painfulness: and he that feareth, is not perfect in love. We love him, because he loved us first.

If any man say, I love God, and hate his brother, he is a liar: for how can he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, love God whom he hath not seen?

And this commandment have we of him, that he that loveth God, should love his brother also.
