“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.” (John 15:9)
“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1 John 5:1–5)
God is Love. All Love comes as gift from God, pure, holy and unconditional to those who believe and are made part of God’s family. God’s Love, opens the way for us to love one another, and bear one another’s burdens in Love, thus fulfilling the law. (Galatians 6:2)
