"And we ourselves know and believe
the love which God has for us.
God is love, and those who live in love
live in union with God and God lives in
union with them. Love is made perfect
in us in order that we may have courage
on the Judgment Day; and we will
have it because our life in this world
is the same as Christ's. There is no fear
in love; perfect love drives out all fear.
So then, love has not been made perfect
in anyone who is afraid, because fear
has to do with punishment.
We love because God first loved us."
(1 John 4:16-19 GNT)
"The promises of the Lord can be trusted;
they are as genuine as silver refined
seven times in the furnace."
(Psalms 12:6 GNT)
