“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:7 Let us love one another - From the doctrine he has just been defending he draws this exhortation. It is by the Spirit that the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts. Every one that truly loveth God and his neighbour is born of God.
1Jo 4:7 Let us love one another. He that is born of God must love because the Father is love; hence love shows that we are of him and know him.
