Bible: 1 John 4:16-18
4:16 And we have come to know and to believe 1 the love that God has in us. 2 God is love, and the one who resides 3 in love resides in God, and God resides in him. 4:17 By this 4 love is perfected with 5 us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, because just as Jesus 6 is, so also are we in this world. 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. 7 The 8 one who fears punishment 9 has not been perfected in love.
