Beloved, Let us Love...

1John 4:7 ‭‭Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.‭ 8 ‭‭He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.‭ 9 ‭‭In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.‭ 10 ‭‭Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son ‭to be‭ the propitiation for our sins.‭ 11 ‭‭Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.‭ 12 ‭‭No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.‭ 13 ‭‭Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.‭ 14 ‭‭And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son ‭to be‭ the Saviour of the world.‭ 15 ‭‭Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.‭ 16 ‭‭And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.‭ 17 ‭‭Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.‭ 18 ‭‭There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.‭ 19 ‭‭We love him, because he first loved us.‭ 20 ‭‭If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?‭ 21 ‭‭And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.‭

God is light (1 John 1:5), God is Love (1 John 4:16); Beloved, let us love one another. Yes, it is that simple for the Christian.
