1 John 4:17-19
KJV 17 Herein is our love made perfect, 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 casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 19 We love him, because he first loved us.
MKJV 17 In this is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, that as He is, so also we are in this world. 18There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has torment. He who fears has not been perfected in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

17 We will stand as Christians on judgment day because of the love of Christ. We are to boldly proclaim God’s love to the world before He brings judgment.

18 We should not fear the Lord because we have His love, we should reverence Him because He is our Father. God will chastise us as His children and this maybe hard but should draw us closer to Him thru love rather then cause us fear.

19 We cant truly know love until we know Him. He is love.
