Bible Notes

1 John 4:16-18 (16.12.21)

1 John 4:16-18
…God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgement: In this world we are like Jesus. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

If you love God and you’re seeking to share God’s love with others, then you have nothing to fear. How come? If you love God and love others, this is evidence of God working in you, love himself. If God is in us, loves us and is for us, there is nothing that can change this or threaten this, as God is greater than all things! We don’t even have to be fearful of any future judgement, because God has already shown his acceptance of us through his love.

God loves you! Take some time to take that in and to revel in his love of you. Know that he has chosen you, that he has made you his, and that he will never let you down or abandon you. Then let God know what this means to you.
