Love Casts Out Fear - Nathan Rages
“By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us.” 1John 4:17-19
The problem: FEAR
Specifically, fearing “the day of judgment” (v17) and the
“punishment” connected to it (v18).
The solution: LOVE
Specifically, two kinds of love:
(1) God loving you thru Christ (v7,9,10,11,12,16,19).
(2) You loving people in a Christ-like way
