The Lord preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.
My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:
For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered
it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.
The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn thee.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me:
and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him,
and will manifest myself to him.
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad
in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work
in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
1 John 4:19
We love him, because he first loved us.
1 John 4:9-11
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only
begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love,
not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for
our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
