The Word of God says that “perfect love casts out fear.” But it also can work the other way…fear casts out love. When we are filled with anxiety and fear, we cannot truly love others. We may respond harshly, or be short with others, and ofttimes it is because we’re anxious inside. But God’s love perfected in us casts out fear, and we must allow daily the peace of Christ to rule and reign in our hearts. Real peace is possible for the believer!
God commands us to love, and His love is a powerful force. When we allow His love to flow through us to others in our sphere of influence, it goes to work, breaking down barriers, removing fear, and bringing healing where there may be division. Let this message encourage you to love more, and love deeper. Love works!
