“There Is No Fear In Love”

Blessings folk!

God’s love is perfected in us - in true believers.
Not in unbelievers.
Not in religionists.
Not in false-professors.

1 Jo 4:17
By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.

We have confidence in the Lord related to the day of judgment.
We do not fear.

Now, read the next verse…

1 Jo 4:18
There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casts out fear,
because fear involves punishment,
and the one who fears is not perfected in love.

There is no fear in the Love of the Lord.
His perfected Love in us casts out fear.
Fear involves punishment.
Believers will not be punished.


The one who fears in not perfected in Love.
They are not truly saved.

This speaks of the day of judgment in the context of the passage.
It also applies to other things.

Far too many who profess to be believers are consumed with fear and anxiety.
Their lives are driven/motivated/consumed by fear of the unknown, fear of the dark (seriously), fear in all its forms.
Such is not of the Lord.

If fear and anxiety exist/rule your life, then turn to the Lord.
Examine yourself to see if you are of the faith…

2 Co 13:5
Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves!
Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—
unless indeed you fail the test?

He will set you free.

Remember what Jesus said…

Mat 6:33-34

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
