For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
For Jehovah is good; his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever, And his faithfulness unto all generations.
For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.
He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
1 John 4:10(KJV)
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
