1 John 4:17

The love of God in us for each other is an assurance that we have met God.

True love is a gift of God.

Jesus gives us two clear commands about love.

When we are perfected in love, the world will see the truth of Jesus in our lives.

Perfect love is selfless. That is what Jesus demonstrated for us. Selfish love says, “What’s in this for me?”
