No fear in love

(12/1) |

Verses:1_John 3:25 ~ 5:3
Key Verse:16-18. And we know and have believed the love which God has in us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God and God abides in him. In this has love been perfected with us, that we may have boldness in the day of the judgment because even as He is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear has punishment, and he who fears has not been perfected in love.
Topic:No fear in love
Emphasis:“Abide in God” sounds very abstract, so John described this matter from different angles. Firstly he said “abide in the light” (2:10); then he said “even as the anointing has taught you, abide in Him” (2:27). This passage, in a very practical sense, tells us to “abide in love” (4:16).
Meditate:Many believers are concerned about the judgment at the second coming of Lord Jesus, because they fear God’s punishment. From this passage, find out how “we may have boldness in the day of the judgment” (4:17).
Prayer:Lord, thank You that You are love. Your salvation enables me to daily abide in love and to boldly continue to stay in the fellowship.
