“Love comes from God.”
-1 John 4:7

“In God, there is no hunger that needs to be filled, only plenteousness that desires to give… God, who needs nothing, loves into existence wholly superfluous creatures in order that He may love and perfect them.”
-C.S. Lewis, from The Four Loves
“The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”
-1 John 4:18
“If we are living in fear, it is not a failure of His love for us but an indication of our need to allow His love to permeate our lives. Fear is a manifestation of the places in our lives where we do not feel loved and cared for. Experiencing the full extent of God’s love for us brings an end to any fear. His love creates an unshakable environment of trust.”
-Phillip Carlson, commentary on 1 John 4:18 from the book You Were Made for Love
