11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19We love him, because he first loved us.

rejoiceth.
or, glorieth.
 This introduction of the divine nature leads the Apostle on to speak of the mercy by which God glorifies Himself. The man who shows no mercy will find himself the object of the judgment which he has loved. (James 2 by J.N. Darby)
 If we profess the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ and show no mercy, we are not acting according to the dictates of the new nature which delights to exercise mercy rather than judgment. (The Proof of Faith by H. Smith)
 Divine mercy goes hand in hand with righteousness, and thereby it triumphs against the judgment that otherwise had been our due. (James 2 by F.B. Hole)
