If there’s one thing that holds us back in life its fear. Fear is the root of worry – it is what keeps us awake at night wondering whether we’re good enough or are doing enough. It’s crippling and reduces our lives to mere survival. The good news is that living with Christ means that we can let go of fear and be empowered to live our lives fully.
Fear occurs as the result of the fallen world we live in. Things are not as they should be and that’s why God sent Jesus to redeem us. 1 John 4:16-18 explains why fear exists and how it’s cast out of our lives.
1 John 4:7-21 tells us that “God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. 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.”
It’s through accepting God’s love and abiding in a relationship with him that fear finds no place in our lives. When we remain in Christ there’s no punishment, and thus no fear. We can have confidence that we’re right with Him!
As we trust in God’s grace and our relationship grows with Him we will continue on a redemptive journey – one that dispels fear and replenishes it with God’s abounding love.
