1 John Series message 15
Text: I John 4:17-19
To abide in God and to abide in love are synonymous. As we grow in Christ and walk with Him, we become mature in "agape" love. His perfect love casts out fear, and we stand ready to meet our Lord on Judgement Day without trepidation. We are assured of this as we see His own work of sanctification in our lives. So once again, love and obedience take center stage in John's thoughts.
