This is love

not that we have loved God,
but that he loved us
and sent his Son as expiation for our sins.

For the bread of God is that which comes down
from heaven and gives life to the world.

No one has ever seen God.
Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us,
and his love is brought to perfection in us.

Whoever remains in love remains in God,
and God in them.

Amen.
