Amor de Deus
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
But God increased the price of his charity toward us in that while we were yet sinners the Christ died for us.
O give thanks unto the LORD, for [he is] good; for his mercy [endures] for ever.
But thou, O Lord, [art] a merciful and gracious God, longsuffering and plenteous in mercy and truth.
We have conceived according to thy mercy, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
Because thou wast precious in my sight, thou wast worthy of honour, and I have loved thee.
For this is the charity of God, that we keep his commandments, and his commandments are not grievous.
The LORD has appeared of old unto me, [saying], I have loved thee with an eternal love: therefore, I have put up with thee with mercy.
I love those that love me, and those that seek me [early] shall find me.
Beloved, let us love one another, for charity is of God. Anyone that loves is born of God and knows God.
He that does not love does not know God, for God is charity.
Extend thy mercy unto those that know thee and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Behold, what charity the Father has given us, that we should be called the sons of God; therefore the world does not know us, because it does not know him.
Charity suffers long [and] is benign; charity envies not; charity does [nothing] without due reason, is not puffed up,
The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save; he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love; he will joy over thee with singing.
9 In this was the charity of God demonstrated in us, in that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 In this does the charity consist, not because we had loved God, but because he loved us and has sent his Son [to be] the reconciliation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
Because thy mercy [is] better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which is the truth in him and in you, because the darkness is past, and the true light now shines.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the charity of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit [be] with you all. Amen.:
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great charity with which he loved us,
even as we were dead in sins, he has made us alive together with the Christ (by [whose] grace ye are saved)
And we have known and believed the charity that God has in us. God is charity, and he that abides in charity abides in God, and God in him.
Therefore I am certain that neither death nor life nor angels nor principalities nor powers nor things present nor things to come
nor height nor depth nor any creature shall be able to separate us from the charity of God, which is in Christ, Jesus our Lord.:
And the Lord make your hearts upright in the charity of God and in the hope of the Christ.
We love him, because he first loved us.
The LORD [is] merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
