1 John 4:17-19
The Consummation of Love
17 Love has been perfected among us in this:
that we may have boldness in the day of judgment;
because as He is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear
because fear involves torment. But he who
fears has not been made perfect in love.
19 We love Him because
He first loved us.
