“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.

This is love: not that we loved God,

but that he loved us and sent his Son

as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Dear friends, since God so loved us,

we also ought to love one another.”    1 John 4:9-11 NIV



“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us.

So, we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.”  1 John 3:16
