If we confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in us, and we in God. We have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love. If we abide in love, we abide in God, and God abides in us. Jesus is patient and kind. Jesus does not envy or boast. Jesus is not arrogant or rude. Jesus does not insist on his own way; Jesus is not irritable or resentful. Jesus does not rejoice at wrongdoing, Jesus rejoices in the truth. Jesus bears all things, Jesus believes all things, Jesus hopes all things, Jesus endures all things.
