15 (A)Whoever confesses that (B)Jesus is the Son of God, God (C)remains in him, and he in God. 16 (D)We have come to know and have believed the love which God has [a](E)for us. (F)God is love, and the one who (G)remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. 17 By this, (H)love is perfected with us, so that we may have (I)confidence in (J)the day of judgment; because (K)as He is, we also are in this world. 18 There is no fear in love, but (L)perfect love drives out fear, because fear [b]involves punishment, and the one who fears is not (M)perfected in love. 19 (N)We love, because He first loved us.
