perfect love casts out fear
1 John 4:18-19
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear,
because fear involves torment. ..(punishment / penalty)
But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us.
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
2 Tim 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
The Lord will give them over to you, that you may do to them according to every commandment which I have commanded you. 6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you."
The fear of man brings a snare,
But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.
Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
'Go up and possess the land which I have given you,'
Therefore understand today that the Lord your God is He who goes over before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord has said to you.
1 Peter 2:24
who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by whose stripes you were healed.
