There is no fear in love.
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
Dear brothers and sisters, greetings in the loving name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
The one single attribute that holds the whole creation is Love. To be precise, it is God’s love and God is love.
Faith and confidence in God.
When God asks us to love others like Him, He actually is giving us the opportunity to live like Him. When we apply Jesus’ love, we are emboldened to be fearless to the world but fearful to God alone. The ability to love others like Lord Jesus, shows the faith and confidence that we have in the Almighty. Those who are in God never shy of showing love and compassion to others. Moreover, it is in giving they long for, for the love does not hold back anyone to help. Pure love does not even mind to sacrifice for others. The ultimate demonstration of love is the one that our Lord Jesus did on the Calvary cross. The Author of all creation willingly came down to the earth to be condemned, mocked, tortured and finally be killed. Yes, purely out of love, Jesus willed to go through all of it.
No fear in Love.
Jesus never feared anything or anybody on this earth. He fully submitted to the will of the Heavenly Father and showed His love by doing everything according to the divine plan of living God. Most importantly the plan of salvation for humanity did not arise out of nothing. But the love and righteousness of God necessitated himself (for He alone is worthy) to be in our place and endure the torture, pain and death.
Finally brethren, when we live the path of love, there is no fear of the world. As the scriptures say, “perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment”. Certainly the one who fears is not made perfect in love. Amen.
