This is Love…

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 4:10

For God so loved YOU that He gave His only Son so that if YOU believe in Him (Jesus) YOU will not perish, but have eternal life… ~ from John 3:16 (paraphrased)

Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. ~ John 15:13

I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. ~ John 10:11

As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep… Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.  No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself.  I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.  This command I have received from My Father. ~ John 10:15,17-18

We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. ~ 1 John 3:16

This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it. ~ 2 John 1:6

Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails…
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
