Jesus me Ama
we -- we love him, because He -- He first loved us;
for you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that because of you he became poor -- being rich, that you by that poverty may become rich.
in this is the love, not that we loved God, but that He did love us, and did send His Son a propitiation for our sins.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of the Christ? tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 (according as it has been written -- 'For Your sake we are put to death all the day long, we were reckoned as sheep of slaughter,')
37 but in all these we more than conquer, through him who loved us;
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first-born out of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth; to him who did love us, and did bathe us from our sins in his blood,
and did make us kings and priests to his God and Father, to him is the glory and the power to the ages of the ages! Amen.
for God did so love the world, that His Son -- the only begotten -- He gave, that every one who is believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during.
Become, then, followers of God, as children beloved,
and walk in love, as also the Christ did love us, and did give himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for an odour fragrance of a sweet smell,
and God does commend His own love to us, that, in our being still sinners, Christ did die for us;
See you what love the Father has given to us, that children of God we may be called; because of this the world does not know us, because it did not know Him;
in this we have known the love, because he for us his life did lay down, and we ought for the brethren the lives to lay down;
greater love than this has no one, that any one his life may lay down for his friends;
for I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor messengers, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present,
nor things about to be, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
