650. Perfect love casts off fear
Perfect love casts off fear – Romans 8:11, Ephesians 3:17, Romans 8:14-15, 1 John 4:18
11 But if the Spirit (new spiritual nature) of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell (inhabit) in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (make alive) your mortal bodies by (motion to) his Spirit (new spiritual nature) that dwelleth (indwelleth) in you.
17 That Christ (the Christ) may dwell (to settle down in a fixed dwelling, the place) in your hearts by (through) faith; that ye, being rooted (to take root) and grounded (founded) in love,
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit (new spiritual nature) of God,
they are the sons of God.
15 For ye
have not received the (a) spirit (one’s distinctive character) of bondage (slave, servant) again to fear; but ye have received the (a) Spirit (ones distinctive character) of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
18 There is not fear in love; but perfect (that which has reached its end) love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment (punishment). He that feareth is not made perfect (that which has reached its end) in love.
