Seeing is loving

 

1 John 4, English Standard Version( ESV)

“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 is perfected in us.

If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; 

for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen 

cannot love God whom he has not seen. 

And this commandment we have from him:

whoever loves God must also love his brother.”

Love in words and action-weekend words

 

1 John chapter 3 –Good News Translation (GNT)

(a letter of John)

16 This is how we know what love is: Christ gave his life for us.

We too, then, ought to give our lives for others! 

17 If we are rich and see others in need, yet close our hearts against them, how can we claim that we love God? 

18 My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.

John chapter 3 Good News Translation (GNT)

(the gospel of John)

16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life. 

For God did not send his Son into the world to be its judge, but to be its savior.
