GOD IS LOVE; THE ULTIMATE EVIDENCE OF HIS LOVE FOR US IS CHRIST HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. (John 3:16) “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

IN CHRIST, GOD’S LOVE HAS BEEN PERFECTED IN US. IT GIVES US THE CONFIDENCE ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT BECAUSE EVEN WHILE WE ARE STILL HERE ON EARTH, GOD SEES US THROUGH THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST WE RECEIVED WHEN WE BELIEVE IN HIM. IN FACT THE BIBLE SAYS, “AS CHRIST IS SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD.” (1Jn 4:17) “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment; because as He (Christ) is, so are we in this world.”

GOD’S PERFECT LOVE DRIVES OUT FEAR BECAUSE FEAR HAS TO DO WITH PUNISHMENT AND THE ONE WHO FEARS IS NOT YET MADE PERFECT IN HIS LOVE. IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU ARE IN CHRIST AND STILL FEAR THE DAY OF JUDGMENT, THERE MAYBE SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL FEEDING. (1Jn 4:18) “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.”
