Fear, worries BIG Brother!

28 12 2013

21909694_sWe are in a series called What is Love Anyway? To read all of this series on love scroll back to The Beatitudes of Love, beginning on 11/9/2013. We have finished the different words for Love in the bible and now we are looking at the hindrances to love and today we look at the BIG brother of worry, fear.

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

Fear is defined as: A painful emotion or passion excited by an expectation of evil, or the apprehension of impending danger. Fear can rangetaunting boys from an uneasiness of mind to stark terror depending on the object of the fear and the circumstances surround the experience.

It is these thoughts of evil from impending doom to which the author of 1 John is speaking. The fear of God’s judgment is broken when we understand and embrace the perfect love of our Father in heaven.

As the daughter of satanists, I have experienced some very awful things. Before understanding this perfect love of God, my fear, based on those awful experiences, kept me bound up to the point I could not function beyond protecting myself, making it impossible to love God and others as He intended.

Blessings and Complete Joy,
