There are quite a few phrases that stood out to me so boldy while reading 1 John

How GREAT is the love the Father has lavished on us, that WE should be called children of God! AND THAT IS WHAT WE ARE!

There is NO FEAR in love! But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.

This is love for God: to obey his commands. AND HIS COMMANDS ARE NOT BURDENSOME!!!

wow! these words speak to my heart so dearly, almost like it is the very first time I have heard them. How great it is that we are loved so dearly without any doing on my part! perfect love has no fear, why should i fear the world?!?!? and HIS commands are NOT burdensome....it isn't a dreaded chore, it is love to carry out the Lord's commands.

I know this all seems so simple, but it has opened my eyes all over again =)
