Perfect love= No fear

1 John 4:18
Perfect love casts out fear. If I love completely then I will not be afraid. Jesus was not afraid of those who led him to the whips and the cross, because he loved them with a perfect love .
The truest form of love is submission -disregarding your own self for the sake of the other. Jesus did this when he washed the disciples feet, when he had compassion on the crowd though he was tired... &when he died on the cross. Greater love has no man than this - laying down his life for his friends. Jesus took on the form of servant. I must even more so, take on a servant's mind and heart. This is the most complete form of love.
When I mature in the spiritual fruit of love, I will be completely free of fear.
