1 John 4:7-9 New English Translation (NET Bible)
God is Love
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, because[a] love is from God, and everyone who loves[b] has been fathered[c] by God and knows God. 8 The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love.[d] 9 By this[e] the love of God[f] is revealed in us:[g] that God has sent his one and only[h] Son into the world so that we may live through him.
