Context Readings

God's Love Revealed

16 So we know and believe in the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever continues to love keeps in union with God, and God with him. 17 Love attains perfection in us, when we have perfect confidence about the Day of Judgment, because here in this world we are living as he lives. 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear. For fear suggests punishment and no one who feels fear has attained perfect love.
