Perfect Love

I John 4:18 reads, “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.”  So many times it has felt like I should not be afraid, that it is something I need to do.  Of course, I realize that fear is the basis of all anger, negative feelings, disease and pain of any kind.  That verse is not telling us that there should be no fear in Love, but there is NO fear in Love.  God is Love and can know no fear.  “Be not afraid” and “Fear not” are all through the Bible.  Would God expect His child to do something so difficult?

The Truth is God knows no fear, so how can we?  We handle this with the knowledge that we are talking about God here, never, ever human love.

  1. As you know I am always working on fear. I very much appreciate your thoughts and insights and especially now when fear would seem to dominate. NEVER…I say…NEVER! 😊 Thank you, Becky!
