For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
In our days and times more is said, written and sung about "love" than during any other time period. But not everything that is called "love" is in actual fact love.
God's love is consistent, oure and perfect and we are loved by him without deserving it.
