1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear.
If we have any fears – of the future, of the economy or even of eternity we can alleviate our fears by knowing how great God’s love is for us. God’s love is perfect and He is love. He loves us individually and personally. If we are fearful, we are distressed and can be kept in bondage to our fears. By knowing God’s nature and His love for us – so great that He sent His Son to the cross to die as a substitute for our sins, we should know to trust Him in all things and not to be fearful because of His love for us. We are all created in His image and if we love Him, we also need to show His love to others. We love each other because He loved us first.
