1 John 4
In 1 John 4:18, we are told that “perfect love casts out fear”. Although it is a rather simple statement, it carries a lot of implications with it and is easy to read and then move on, much like we might read a statement such as, “lead is heavy”. Yet, the statement deserves far more attention than that. If you look at it carefully, it says you can expect the fear to remain as long as nothing is done to replace it.
