There is no fear in love
Daily Word - June 4, 2019
"There is no fear in love, because perfect love cast out fear. Because fear hath torment... He that feareth is not made perfect in love." I John 4:18
First of all love is greater and stronger than fear, and "perfect love cast it out". And also understand that fear is tormenting and that fear and love are at opposite poles. They are such opposite poles that if you are functioning in one you are not functioning in the other. Such is the great weaponry of God. We think that faith is what is in total contrast to fear, and it is, but we find that love is in contrast to fear also and that
love being perfected is able to cast it down. This is why a father would run into a burning building without thought, for a child. Or a mother would face unspeakable odds to protect a child. But perfect love is also able to deal with long term delemas of pressure and intimidation when it comes to loved ones. When faith works in tandem with love you have the most powerful combination known to man. "The only thing that matters is faith working through love." Gal. 5:6 NET.
Think about it.
