Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.
1 John 4:7a
Love Rightly UNDERSTOOD
Comes from GOD
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not
know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:7b-8
Love Rightly EXPRESSED
Identifies GOD’S PEOPLE
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.
1 John 4:9-10
Love Rightly DEFINED
Is found in Jesus
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen
God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:11-12
Love Rightly LIVED OUT
