The Perfect Love of God (1 John 4:11-21)Bruce Whitehead, November 14, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
Gods love allows one to be awake each morning. People are scared of a lot of things. Torment is a type of fear. Being tormented is a case of worry and can cause lack of sleep.
Some fears of life is being alone. If one was left alone for sometime they would begin to go crazy. The truth of life though is that You're never alone. God is always there and always will be.
Our love as a human is not perfect but conditional. We love because of but God loves in spite of.
We all have a fear of failure. The little voice in our head is always telling us we can't do something because we are not good at it. But with God all things done thru Him are perfect. 1 John 2:2; means that if we are walking with God that when we do fail He will take of it.
Most everyone are afraid of death. The fear of death is something we have no control of and those things most fears. The perfect love of God casts out the fear of death. Once we die with Christ we will live forever with Christ. If death finds you while you're lost then an eternal Hell, fire and torment will be your forever home.
What are you afraid of?

1 John 4:11-21
11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17Herein 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. 18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 19We love him, because he first loved us. 20If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. (KJV)
