1 John 4:7-10 NIV
 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love 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.  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.
God has loved us beyond everything and when we didn’t know or care about him, he gave his Son to die for us – you are precious in his sight! In view of this, let us love one another – look out today for ways to show our love for others and we will find that it is God’s love we share. Through troubled times it is love that will keep us and give us hope!
Love divine, all loves excelling,
joy of heaven, to earth come down,
fix in us your humble dwelling,
all your faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, you are all compassion,
pure, unbounded love impart;
visit us with your salvation,
enter every trembling heart.
