Passage: 1 John 4:7-21 Speaker: Pastor Will Galkin Series: Standalone Messages

Speaker: Will Galkin -John tells believers that when they love one another their love is “made perfect.” The word “perfect” conveys the idea of arriving at a destination – like when one finishes a long trip or completes the construction of a new home. “Perfect” can also mean mature – like a child who grows into a fully developed adult. John has already stated that God’s love “is perfected in us” (has reached its goal) when believers choose to actively love one another (4:12). In the following verses (17-21), John directs his attention towards the perfection of the believer’s love. He reveals that the believer’s love has reached a state of maturity when he can look towards God’s future day of judgment with confidence and when he can love others in this present day without fear.
