But God shows his own love to us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, slowness to anger, kindness, benevolence, faithfulness,
For this is the love of God, our keeping his commands. And his commands are not burden-some,
Love works no evil to a neighbor. Love therefore is full obedience to the Law.
He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
4 Love is longsuffering, love is kind, is not jealous, love does not boast, is not conceited,
5 does not behave unbecomingly, does not seek her own interest, is not irritable, does not count up her wrongs,
6 does not rejoice in wickedness, but rejoices with the truth,
7 excuses all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails; but if there are prophetic powers, they will become useless; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will become useless.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has pain. He who fears has not been made perfect in love.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life nor angels nor archangels, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height nor depth nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from God's love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that every one who believes in him may not perish, but have life eternal.
A new command I give you, to love one another, as I have loved you \'97 that so you love one another.
By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love to one another."
