Amor de Deus
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only born Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
But God commends his own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever.
But you, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth.
We have thought about your loving kindness, God, in the middle of your temple.
Since you have been precious and honored in my sight, and I have loved you, therefore I will give people in your place, and nations instead of your life.
For this is loving God, that we keep his commandments. His commandments are not grievous.
Yahweh appeared of old to me, saying, “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love. Therefore I have drawn you with loving kindness.
I love those who love me. Those who seek me diligently will find me.
Beloved, let’s love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
He who doesn’t love doesn’t know God, for God is love.
Oh continue your loving kindness to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.
I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself up for me.
See how great a love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God! For this cause the world doesn’t know us, because it didn’t know him.
Love is patient and is kind. Love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud,
Yahweh, your God, is among you, a mighty one who will save. He will rejoice over you with joy. He will calm you in his love. He will rejoice over you with singing.
9 By this God’s love was revealed in us, that God has sent his only born 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 as the atoning sacrifice for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God loved us in this way, we also ought to love one another.
Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.
Brothers, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.
Again, I write a new commandment to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light already shines.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s love, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us,
even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—
We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.
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 any other created thing will be able to separate us from God’s love which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and into the perseverance of Christ.
We love him, because he first loved us.
Yahweh is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness.
