Perfect Love

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He who fears is not made perfect in love (I John 4:18).

What a beautiful phrase we find in this verse, perfect love.”

Think of it! What inestimable value such a love would be.

Where could such a love as this be found? There is only one source: our Father. God perfectly loves His creation. He cannot unlove us; for His is divine love, a love that will never fail (I Corinthians 3:8). He is a God Who cannot not love us; because love is Who He is!

God is love (I John 4:8, 16).

The love of God can be seen wonderfully manifested through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. He loved ordinary people just where they were. He loved fishermen, harlots and tax collectors. He even loved those who constantly put their feet in their mouths, fell asleep on the job, and denied Him.

How amazing is such “perfect love!” Come to know this great divine love and the result will be that “perfect love casts out fear.”

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalms 27:1).
