Perfect Love

1 John 4:18-19 says; Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. We love each other because he loved us first.  What are you afraid of today?  Is fear piercing the marrow of your bones?  Could it be fear of financial ruin, fear for the salvation of your children, fear for your marriage, or even fear of death?  Satan wants us to fear to the point that we lose sight of the One whose perfect love will cast out ALL fear.  Jesus expressed this perfect love on Calvary when He died the second death for all humanity.  He wants this perfect love to fill your life so that You will have the peace that passes all understanding rather than fear.  Perfect love will even cast out your fear of death because it brings security in the Beloved.  Commit yourself to the Savior today.  Focus your life on His righteousness, and He will fill you with His perfect love that will cast out all fear.
