Love never brings fear, for fear is always related to punishment. But love’s perfection drives the fear of punishment far from our hearts. Whoever walks constantly afraid of punishment has not reached love’s perfection. Our love for others is our grateful response to the love God first demonstrated to us.

1 John 4:18-20 TPT

God is love and his love makes us unafraid of being honest about who we are, being close to others, and gives us the ability to love unconditionally because we feel the unconditional love of God!

How has God loved you? How can you imitate that love by loving others?
