12 (A)No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His (B)love is perfected in us. 13 (C)By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 We have seen and (D)testify that the Father has (E)sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

15 (F)Whoever confesses that (G)Jesus is the Son of God, God (H)abides in him, and he in God. 16 (I)We have come to know and have believed the love which God has [a](J)for us. (K)God is love, and the one who (L)abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 17 By this, (M)love is perfected with us, so that we may have (N)confidence in (O)the day of judgment; because (P)as He is, so also are we in this world.
