No Fear in Love

Sin brings fear into our lives. We’re fearful of God’s punishment because we know our sin is deserving of punishment. When we’re declared forgiven we are set free… it is a declaration of freedom. John wrote this: “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 * How do we know that we are following God’s direction in forgiveness? * I thank the Lord for delivering me from my depression. I found the living word to be the cure for my depression. * Christ says, “I will never leave you or forsake you” and that is the greatest promise we have.

    Being declared free can only set us free if we accept all that comes with that freedom. A declaration must be accepted and followed through. Grace did not abound so that we could continue in sin. Asking forgiveness is more than a declaration, it is a mindset that is accomplished in the heart of a believer and followed through in their actions. We must show the fruits of repentance so that they will know we are His.
