“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.
(1 John 4:18)
There is not fear in love – No slavish fear can be where love reigns. But perfect, adult love casteth out slavish fear;
because such fear hath torment – And so is inconsistent with the happiness of love.
A natural man has neither fear nor love;
One that is awakened, fear without love;
A babe in Christ, love and fear;
A father in Christ, love without fear.
~ John Wesley Commentary
I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear; what can man do unto me?
