1 John 4:7-9 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
7 My dear brothers, we must love one another, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves others is God's child and he knows God.
8 But anyone who does not love others does not know God, because God is love.
9 This is how God showed his love for us. He sent his only Son into the world to give us life.
1 John 4:7-9 New International Version (NIV)
God’s Love and Ours
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
