Another quite difficult passage to arc in 1 John. I will write commentary on it later, God willing.

1 John
1 John 4:7-21
NT
esv
Beloved, let us love one another,
for love is from God,
and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
ground
Anyone who does not love does not know God,
because God is love.
negativepositive
In this the love of God was made manifest among us,
that God sent his only Son into the world,
so that we might live through him.
actionpurpose
ideaexplanation
In this is love,
not that we have loved God
but that he loved us
and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
actionresult
Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also ought to love one another.
conditional
No one has ever seen God;
if we love one another,
God abides in us
and his love is perfected in us.
concessive
By this we know that we abide in him and he in us,
because he has given us of his Spirit.
And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son [in the flesh] to be the Savior of the world.
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God [alt: whoever has the Spirit of truth by confessing that Jesus has come in the flesh],
God abides in him, and he in God.
bilateral
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us.
God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
By this [abiding] is love perfected with us,
so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment,
because as he is [perfect in love]
so also are we in this world [perfected in love].
comparison
There is no fear in love,
but perfect love casts out fear.
For fear has to do with punishment
and whoever fears [judgment day] has not been perfected in love.
progression
We love
because he first loved us.
If anyone says, "I love God," and hates his brother,
he is a liar;
for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen
cannot love God whom he has not seen.
And this commandment we have from him:
whoever loves God must also love his brother.
