But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.
Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous or boastful, it is not arrogant
5 or rude, it does not seek its own, it is not provoked, it keeps no record of wrongs,
6 it does not rejoice in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails; but where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. And he who fears is not made perfect in love.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.«
