Amor de Deus
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.
But God commends His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
Oh give thanks to the LORD; for [He is] good; for His mercy [endures] forever.
But You, O God, [are] God full of pity, and gracious, long-suffering, and rich in mercy and truth.
We have thought of Your loving-kindness, O God, in the midst of Your temple.
Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you; therefore I will give men for you, and people for your life.
For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments, and His commandments are not burdensome.
Jehovah has appeared to me from afar, [saying], Yea, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you.
I love those who love Me; and those who seek Me early shall find Me.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone who loves has been born of God, and knows God.
The one who does not love has not known God. For God is love.
O continue Your loving-kindness to those who know You, and Your righteousness to the upright in heart.
I have been crucified with Christ, and I live; [yet] no longer I, but Christ lives in me. And [that] life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith toward the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself on my behalf.
Behold what manner of love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God. Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
Charity has patience, is kind; charity is not envious, is not vain, is not puffed up;
The LORD your God [is] mighty in your midst; He will save, He will rejoice over you with joy; He is silent in His love; He rejoices over you with joyful shout.
9 In this the love of God was revealed in us, because God sent His only begotten Son into the world that we might live through Him.
10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son [to be] the propitiation concerning our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
Because Your loving-kindness [is] better than life, my lips shall praise You.
Brothers, I do not write a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you had from [the] beginning. The old commandment is the word which you have heard from [the] beginning.
Again, I write a new commandment to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true Light now shines.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love [with] which He loved us
(even when we were dead in sins) has made us alive together with Christ (by grace you are saved),
And we have known and believed the love that God has in us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
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.
And may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patience of Christ.
We love Him because He first loved us.
The LORD [is] merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and rich in mercy.
