God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.1 John 4:16
God is Love
Do you ever wonder why God didn’t just leave Jesus on this earth? Why would He send His Son Jesus, just to live forty years and then die when there are so many more people who would need Him? God had a divine purpose in sending Jesus when He did and a purpose for why he lived only forty years. Part of that purpose was for us. He wanted us to be His hands and feet after Jesus was gone. He commanded us to go into the world to share the gospel. When we go, we are not alone. He is living and breathing inside of us in the form of the Holy Spirit. It is because of the Holy Spirit that His love grows inside of you and helps you not be afraid when you bring the gospel to the world. He is right there with you. Your love for the lost world will grow the more you pursue Him.
Even though Jesus died while on the earth, God raised Him from the dead, and even after He went to heaven, God sent the Holy Spirit, so you are never alone. Do not be afraid, but have confidence!
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for always walking alongside me and giving me courage to bring the gospel to my friends, family, and everyone around me. Amen
