(God's) Perfect Love Casts Out Fear

Sunday, October 18, 2009 Bryan Hudson 1 Comments

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

People are tormented by fear because of the absence of God, who is love, dwelling in them. To be tormented is to experience repeated anguish over some fear from which we don’t feel that we can be free. Torment is the thought, the scenario, the drama that plays out in our minds over and over again.

Fear defined: Intimidation and agitation at the expectation of danger and harm; caused by many factors including fears about: safety, neglect, provision.

Perfect love, that is God’s perfect love that is in you, will cast out all fear. If there are things you need to do, but that you are afraid to do, God’s love and presence will remove all those fears. Rather than expecting something bad to happen, you expect something good to happen because your "Father” is right there with you!
