God Is Love

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love.

Only God loves perfectly…because God is Love (1 John 4:8). God (or Love) does not desire to instill fear in you…but joy. God (or Love) does not desire to punish you…but to love you. What else would Love do? So when we are afraid…we know it is not from God. Hand your fear over to Jesus…who says: “Come to me, all you who are labored and are burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
