Thought for today: Perfect In Love
“I know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You are yourself the answer. Before your face questions die away. What other answer would suffice?” — C.S. Lewis
Everything we stand in need of is in God.
There is no other name under heaven by which all men can be saved. There is none like Our God.
I’ve heard 1 John 4:18 read many times at weddings and it truly is a beautiful scripture to reflect upon. God is perfection in every way and without any faults or sin. His love towards us is perfect in every way as well. It’s completely unconditional and given away extravagantly.
As much as we’d like to think we fear nothing in life, at times we do. The hope we have as Christians is that in the midst of whatever we fear, we can turn and rest in God’s love knowing that His love overshadows even the greatest fear. When fear may try to creep in, we need not fight with pride or our strength but with the perfect love found in our God. A love so perfect that He would send His son Jesus to die on the cross for us! This perfect love conquered fear forever!
*What are you afraid of ?
Take all your fears, multiply them by 100, and then place them on the scale called God’s love. His love makes even the biggest fear look so small. Perfect Love Casts Out ALL fear!!!
Reading for today: 1Jn. 4:18-19 (NKJV)
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. We love Him because He first loved us.
