1 John 4:17-21 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

17 In this, love is made complete with us so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, because as he is, so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment.[a] So the one who fears is not complete in love. 19 We love[b] because he first loved us. 20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and yet hates his brother or sister, he is a liar. For the person who does not love his brother or sister whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.[c] 21 And we have this command from him: The one who loves God must also love his brother and sister.
