We Need Not Fear
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Romans 8:31 (NKJV)
When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour we then belong to him and we can depend on him to take care of us. We need not fear the future when we belong to Jesus, for he is greater than any problem that we may have to face!
It is very important that we spend quality time with God every day in prayer, Bible study and meditation. The more time we spend with him the better we will get to know him, and become more like him. If we only spend two minutes a day with a person we will not get to know them very well and the same applies to our Heavenly Father!
When we get to know him we will realize that he radiates love to everyone, and that he wants us also to radiate love to everyone! This is not always easy—our human nature only wants to show love to those who are kind and loving to us, but this is not what the Bible teaches. God’s word teaches us to radiate love to every one through the power of the Holy Spirit—Christ in us!
1 John 4:7 tells us, “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.”
Heavenly Father, thank you for the incredible love that you have for everyone. Please fill us with your love so that we also can radiate your love to everyone.
