Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God lives in us, and God’s love is perfected in us. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. ~1 John 4:11-12; 18a
“Faith is action” – it is a verb, based on God’s love for us and therefore it is fearless. It is willing to risk because it knows it can trust God for the outcome. How will people know we are followers of Jesus’ teachings? The evidence is written all over our lives. Loving God implies loving neighbor as well.
