Perfect love casts out fear – 9

Dolly Lee Spiritual Formation, Uncategorized 0 Comments

Dear Friends,

Sorry, I haven’t posted as regularly this month.

On Saturday, we grieved and remembered a special young woman. If you pray, could you please pray God’s comfort for her parents, brothers, and friends. Thank you.


v. 18   There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.

v.19   We love because he [God] first loved us.

v.20   Those who say, “I love God,” and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen.

—1 John 4:18–20 NRSV

Praying for our country as the election nears.

What do  you think of how the apostle John contrasted love and fear?

Why do you think love must battle fear?

Do you think learning to love well is a process?

Thanks for being here. I appreciate your presence and your thoughts.

This is the 9th post in our Love Series.
