Loving One Another
4:7 Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is born of God and know God.
4:8 For God is love.
4:9 God showed how much he loved us by sending his only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. 4:10 This is real love.
4:11 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. 4:12 No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love has been brought to full experession through us.
4:17 And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we are like Christ here in this world.
4:18 Such love has no fear because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it i for fear of judgement, and this shows that his love has not been perfected in us. We love each other as a result of his loving us first.
5:13 I write this to you who believe in the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. 5:14 And we can be confident that he will listen to us whenever we ask him for anything in line with his will. 5:15 And if we know he is listening when we make our requests, we can be sure that he will give us what we ask for. 5:16 But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it. Every wrong is sin, but not all sin leads to death.
5:19 We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the power and control of the evil one. 5:20 Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.
