“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.” 1 John 4:18 NIV
What drives fear out? Love.
The love of Jesus.
What if you make a mistake? Will God reject you? No.
Jesus took your punishment upon Himself so you can live fearlessly.
Jesus stands with you and will not abandon you.
Don’t let fear be the reason you shrink back.
When fear rises up to dismantle your faith or weave it’s tentacles around your feet to trip you up, you must remember:
- You have nothing to fear.
- You are loved by God.
Jesus walked the earth, spoke truth to all who would listen, healed broken bodies and restored broken souls to God. It was His love that breathed life into the first lungs of man and His word that drives out the darkness within you.
Face your fear today, surrounded by the assurance that you are fully loved and fully supported by the Maker of the universe Himself.
Hang your hat on His love and get down to the business of loving others with the confident abandon that comes with it.
