JESUS destroys Fear and Death
Fear grips and paralyses
Fear causes panic and heart palpitations
Fear blocks logic, reason and rational thought
Fear incites harmful patterns of thought
Fear blocks love
Fear removes peace
Fear destroys hope
Fear moves one into hate
Fear is the wrong motive
Fear causes blindness to Truth
Fear causes sorrow and pain
FEAR IS WEAK.
I did not choose Jesus. He chose me. He did not force me to come. All He did was show me His love. Love does not force you to do anything because then you wouldn’t appreciate nor understand the “value” of Truth. Jesus showed me how much He cared and how much He loved me, selflessly sacrificing Himself for me. That is True Love. That is GREAT love. That is Perfect Love. Love is what draws us to God, not fear. However, for those who say there is no God, I say this: the fear of God is the beginning of all wisdom. God is to be feared and rightly so. He isn’t “only” love, He is absolutely holy and just. He has emotions just like us and wickedness angers Him. If we do not accept the rope of salvation in Christ Jesus, we are only awaiting His absolute wrath, because in Jesus He paid the Ultimate Price. To those that put their faith in Jesus, God will dangle the rope of salvation, saving them from eternal torment. Perfect love is God’s love for us, sacrificing His sinless Son for our sake, so that justice is served.
“We love him, because he first loved us” ~1 John 4.19
Love does not fear expressing its godliness. Love does not fear being exposed to the pain of others. Love does not fear being hurt by others. Love does not fear truth. Love does not fear death. Love does not fear love. Love does not fear aging. Love does not fear people.
Love does not fear change. Love does not fear challenge. Love does not fear to lead. Love does not fear sorrow. Love does not fear pain. Love does not fear depression. Love does not fear rejection. Love always forgives.
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.” ~1 John 4.18
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. ~2 Timothy 1:7
God has destroyed the fear of death for you on the cross, so that you can be free from the chains of darkness. Jesus has risen from the dead on the 3rd day of His crucifixion and in Him we have eternal life: Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free ~John 8:32
Use and abuse is from fear. Love does not use or abuse. Love does not abuse God. Love does not abuse Jesus. Love does not abuse oneself. Love does not abuse others. Love does not abuse truth.
Love does not remain the same as it was yesterday. Love grows each day. Love has open arms to truth. Love is strong. Love reconsiders and reevaluates. Love learns. Love teaches. Love cares. Love shares. Love endures.
Love is the opposite of torment. Love is contentment and gratification; delight and enjoyment; bliss and happiness. Love is powerful. Love moves the world. Love stands up to fear. Love defeats fear. Love conquers death, decay, and distrust.
Love tells fear to take a hike. Love casts out despair. Love replaces sadness. Love dispels gloominess. Love removes misery. Love does away with hopelessness. Love triumphs the melancholy. Love overcomes insecurity – emotional, intellectual, physical, financial, national, and spiritual insecurity.
Love invests itself. Love proves itself. Love strengthens others. Love encourages others. Love finds a way. Love wants others to succeed. Love finds delight in truth. Love finds enjoyment of sanity. Love finds the bliss of happiness.
Love loves God. Love loves Jesus. Love loves oneself. Love loves others. Love loves truth. Love accepts growth. Love accepts challenges. Love fears no one. Love fears no truth. Love fears no giant. Love fears no thing. Love believes anything and everything is possible. Love forgives. Love forgets. Love is strong. Love is bold. Love is not afraid of taking the world by storm for God.
