# 6 – 1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Whenever we are truly, deeply in love with someone we shouldn’t feel fear. There is no fear in love – only passion, understanding, and kindness. Fear results in torment, misunderstandings and heartbreak. When we love God and others, we should be faithful in that love.
If we are in love with someone, the worst thing we can do is FEAR. We must let ourselves be consumed by the love. Some people fear change or commitment, but we shouldn’t. Love is a pure, amazing thing. Humans are imperfect and things can happen, but the act of love will always be the same.
# 5 – 1 John 4:8
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
This is an extremely important verse in the Book of John. This verse tells us that God IS love. If God is love, and we desire getting closer to God, we should learn to love more deeply and more fully than ever before.
This might be the most straightforward Biblical advice on love in existence. If God is love, then love is good (like God). It is also pure and holy. This is why when we feel love, we need to remember it is sacred. It should be treated with respect – and so should our fellow man.
