Jesus me Ama
We love him, because he first loved us.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that you through his poverty might be rich.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. To him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And has made us kings and priests to God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
To you, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He has not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Be you therefore followers of God, as dear children;
And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling smell.
But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not.
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 brothers.
Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
