The Bible says that "perfect love casts out fear." What on earth does that mean? We can become paralyzed by fear without even realizing it. What risks are you not taking because you are scared to try? What anxieties are you experiencing because you are afraid that some of the lies in your mind might really be true?

There are two main kinds of fear. Fear can be emotional, and this type is based on hurt (just like anger is based on hurt, except fear works to avoid future hurt and anger is a response to past hurt). Fear can also be mental, and this type is based on lies. Emotional fear needs comfort, and mental fear needs truth.

So what is this "perfect love" that the Bible tells us about? It's the ultimate solution to fear. A mysterious and wondrous love that keeps its promises. A love that is complete and dependable. A love that never fails. We can see glimpses of it in each other and provide it to each other. And we receive it most completely through our best friend ever: the triune God.
