R-45 LOVE FOR GOD 愛咱的上帝
Romans 5:8; 1 John 4:8-10; 3:1a; 4:11-12, 18-19 (NKJV)
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! ...
Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
... If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.
