His love for us, expressed to us, alive in us!
God’s love for us,
… expressed in His action towards us,
by providing a way for us, into His love.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Jesus’ love for us,
… expressed in His action on our behalf,
by doing what we could not do,
… to deserve God’s love for us!
By this we know love,
because He laid down His life for us.
1 John 3:16
And our love for God,
… expressed in our actions towards others,
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another;
as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
The love triangle complete …
I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one,
and that the world may know that You have sent Me,
and have loved them as You have loved Me.
and perfected in us …
Love has been perfected among us in this:
that we may have boldness in the day of judgment;
because as He is, so are we in this world.
1 John 4:17
