1 John 4:18-21

This perfected love mentioned in the past two Bible readings has no fear. This means every fear that occurs in life is extinguished by the provision of God’s love. It means the fear of rejection from the closest of peers is fulfilled in the acceptance that Christ gives. A perfect, fearless love is the total acceptance that God has redeemed, completed, fulfilled, accomplished, and achieved any possible miscomings that might enter life. It is believing God has attained the victory.

In fearless love, one seeks forgiveness to love your brothers and sisters. In fearless love, one lives with the assurance of salvation with a hope that is unwavering. In fearless love, life is a mission field and the tongue aches to speak the truth of the Gospel to all that have ears to hear. Fearless love aches to be obedient to every word uttered by the breath of God. This love is a love that cannot be breached by this broken world and when pursuing, nothing can hold it back. God has called his people to this, so let us begin to act together fearlessly spreading the truth.
