God always had a plan!

In this is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins. 


Beloved, if God loved us so [very much], we also ought to love one another. 

No man has at any time [yet] seen God. But if we love one another, God abides (lives and remains) in us 

The LOVE of GOD is made evident in OUR lives!

and His love (that love which is essentially His) is brought to completion (to its full maturity, runs its full course, is perfected) in us! 

The HOLY SPIRIT assures us of OUR CONNECTION with GOD.

By this we come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we abide (live and remain) in Him and He in us: because He has given (imparted) to us of His [Holy] Spirit. 

WE Know.....that WE Know.....that we KNOW........ WE ARE SAVED!

And [besides] we ourselves have seen (have deliberately and steadfastly contemplated) and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son [as the] Savior of the world. (1 John 4:10-14 AMP)
