1st John 3:16-18 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: And we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother hath need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; But in deed and in truth.
1st John 4:7-9,11-12,16 Beloved, let us love one another: For the love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God towards us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 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.
1st John 4:19,21 We love him, because he first loved us. And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
1st John 5:1-2 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: And every one that loveth him that begat, loveth every one also that is begotten of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
