Verses We Love – a Comparison of 1 John 3:16

We understand what love is when we realize that Christ gave his life for us. That means we must give our lives for other believers.
GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
Closest Natural Equivalence

By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.
English Standard Version (ESV)
Word-for-Word

We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.
New Living Translation (NLT)
Thought-for-Thought

This is how we’ve come to understand and experience love: Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves.
