theWord

1 John 4: 17-19: “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts our fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears
has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.” The mature expression of ‘perfected’ love produces confidence as a Christian anticipates Jesus’ judgment of the world. A person who abides in love will not be ashamed when Jesus returns. A mature understanding of God’s love removes any fear of God’s judgment. Fear is a tool of the devil and I can tell you from personal experience; once you replace fear, hatred, and judgmental attitudes in your heart … with LOVE; your lives will change for the better and a happy confidence overwhelms you. If we don’t learn anything else from theWord – learn to love; deeply, purely and honestly. Then Jesus can work in our lives.
