Perfect Love


The term “casts out” in I John means displaces, the process by which one thing replaces another, just as air displaces water in a submarine, causing it to rise to the surface. They cannot occupy the same space at the same time. In the same way, God’s love displaces fear, casting it out and taking its place!

May you know that perfect love now and always, dear friends.
