1 John 4:16-19

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

19 We love him, because he first loved us.

  1. Perfect love casts out fear.

    If we fear, we are not made perfect in love. There is torment in fear.

    If we have perfect love, we have perfect confidence and trust in Him. Our trust and confidence in Him drives out fear, does not give place to torment, and relies on His perfect promises.
