    There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. - 1 John 4:18

    Well there it is. The answer to every human fear. Love.
    It wont take long to find someone today that is just about at the breaking point of loosing it... men and women that are white knuckled holding onto the edge of their sanity. To be brutally honest, many of them should be. They know that the fear they have is bigger than themselves and they have not met Him.
    For others they find comfort from their fear in Love. God is love. They are not afraid of being punished for they have placed their faith in the work of the one who was punished for their sin. The life they now live they live by faith in the Son of God who loved them and gave himself for them.
    There comes that “perfected” word again. How is one perfected? The word tells us we are perfected in love. God is love. In him there is no darkness. Perfect light means perfect sight. We stand before the judge and he judges perfectly. We have fellowship with the Father because of his Son.
    So what can we say to those today that fear? Abide in God. Abide in love. Remain in Him and he will keep you for now is the day of salvation.


    Proverbs 29:25
    “The fear of man bringeth a snare:
    but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.“
