Fear or Love?
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear” (I John 4:18).
If we cocoon ourselves and build up walls to try to keep others from hurting us because we are afraid of being hurt, we haven’t really understood God’s love. Read A.W. Tozer’s powerful affirmations about love and fear
“Love wills the good of all and never wills harm or evil to any. ‘There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear.’ Fear is a painful emotion that arises at the thought that we may be harmed or made to suffer. As long as we must trust for survival to our ability to out-look or out manoeuvre the enemy, we have every good reason to be afraid. Fear is torment. . . . To know that love is of God and to enter into the secret place leaning upon the arm of the Beloved — this and only this can cast out fear.”
Lord Jesus, You know how often we become afraid. Cause us to lean on Your arm, beloved Father, and believe with our whole hearts that You are love. Amen.

How You Can Experience God’s Love and Forgiveness
The Forgiveness God Offers
Do you sometimes find it difficult to believe that you have total forgiveness for your sins in Jesus Christ? Intellectually you believe it, but how about deep within your heart?
Imagine yourself in the crowd as this story takes place as recorded in the Book of Luke:
"Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a sleeping mat.... Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the man, 'My friend, your sins are forgiven!'
'Who does this fellow think he is?' the Pharisees and teachers of the Law exclaimed among themselves. 'This is blasphemy! Who but God can forgive sins?'
Jesus knew what they were thinking, and he replied, 'Why is it blasphemy? I, the Messiah, have the authority on earth to forgive sins.... I’ll prove it to you by healing this man.' Then, turning to the paralyzed man, he commanded, 'Pick up your stretcher and go on home, for you are healed!' (Luke 5:18,20–24, TLB).
What a marvelous illustration of God’s willingness to forgive. Read the complete article
