Context Readings

God's Love Revealed

16 And we have known and believed the charity that God has in us. God is charity, and he that abides in charity abides in God, and God in him. 17 By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. 18 In charity there is no fear; but charity that is perfect casts out fear; because fear has torment; from which he that fears is not complete in charity.
