Message of the Day: We Have God’s Love, We Have Nothing To Fear!
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18, NKJV)
We have increased confidence in God through our inward possession of the Holy Spirit and our outward acknowledgment of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Savior of sinners. We know that we live in God and that God lives in us. This new relationship with God (who is love) enables us to practise love towards other people as Jesus Christ did. This gives us added confidence that we are saved eternally and need never fear God’s judgment.
If we have God’s love, we would have no fear of anything – for what would we have to fear? We have no fear of death, for we have nothing to dread beyond the grave. It is guilt that makes people fear what is to come; but we whose sins have been forgiven, and whose hearts are filled with the love of God, have nothing to fear in this world or the world to come.
