God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in Him, and God in Him. Love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like Him. We love because He first loved us. If anyone say “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God who he has not seen. And He has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love His brother (1 John 4:16-21).
