Today's Verse : 1 John 4:18


April 18, 2012

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.
-- 1 John 4:18
Do you remember what Jesus said when he came walking on the
water to his disciples during the storm? He literally told them,
"Do not fear, I Am." In the presence of the holy and awesome Son of
God, we don't have to be afraid. God's grace to us in Jesus takes
away our need for fear because Jesus' sacrifice makes us holy,
without fault, and free from any charge against us (Colossians
1:21-22). Our response? Love! We love our Father for who he is, for
what he has done, for his great sacrifice for us, and most of all,
for making us holy and taking away our fear.
Dear Father in heaven, you are holy, awesome, and glorious.
These are things I could never be without your grace, yet you have
chosen to give me these blessings through the sacrifice of your Son
Jesus. Thank you. I love you. In Jesus' name I praise you. Amen.
