Jesus Is Perfect Love.

“Take a moment to think of who on this earth loves you the most. Now, what does it feel like to beloved a billion times more than that? Hard to imagine isn’t it, but Jesus loves you that much!” – Unknown (*quote, not Scripture)

The perfect love of Jesus drives our fears away, as we find our comfort in Him. “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18)

When we exemplify the love of Jesus to others, it brings us together with others in unity. “And over all these virtues, put on love, which is the bond of perfect unity.” (Colossians 3:14) “And as we lived in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face Him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.” (1 John 4:17)

Because of His perfect love, He chose not to destroy all of mankind for our sin, but rather to choose that some of us be redeemed by accepting His sacrifice on our behalf. “For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love, He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will – to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.” (Ephesians 1:4-6)
