“The connection between the vine and the branch is a living one.
No external, temporary union will suffice; no work of man can
effect it: the branch, whether an original or an engrafted one, is
such only by the Creator’s own work, in virtue of which the life,
the sap, the fatness, and the fruitfulness of the vine communicate
themselves to the branch. And just so it is with the believer too.” ~

1 John 4:13-16 MESSAGE
This is how we know we're living steadily and deeply in him, and
he in us: He's given us life from his life, from his very own Spirit.
Also, we've seen for ourselves and continue to state openly that the
Father sent his Son as Savior of the world. Everyone who confesses
that Jesus is God's Son participates continuously in an intimate
relationship with God. We know it so well, we've embraced it heart
and soul, this love that comes from God. ~ 
1 John 4:13-16 MESSAGE

The Message Bible  

1 John 4:13-16
11–16 Divinely loved ones, since in that manner and to that extent did God love us, also, as for us, we are under moral obligation to be constantly loving one another. God in His [invisible] essence no one has ever yet beheld, with the result that no one has the capacity to behold Him. If we habitually are loving one another, God in us is abiding, and His love has been brought to its fullness in us and exists in that state of fullness. In this we know experientially that in Him we are dwelling and He himself in us, because He has given us from His Spirit as a source [spiritual gifts and their operation] as a permanent gift. And as for us, we have deliberately and steadfastly contemplated, and we are testifying that the Father has sent off the Son as Saviour of the world. Whoever agrees with the statement that Jesus is the Son of God, God in him dwells and he himself in God. And as for us, we have known experientially the love which God has in our case, and have that knowledge at present, and we have believed and at present maintain that attitude. God is, as to His nature, love, and he who dwells in the aforementioned love in God is dwelling, and God in him is dwelling.
1 John 4:13-16
