You are loved perfectly

By Adrian Rogers

BIBLE MEDITATION:

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

When you read the verse, “Perfect love casteth out fear” what’s your reaction? You may be thinking, “I can never manage to achieve perfect love.” But that’s not what John is saying. Think of it this way: you have no need to fear Someone who loves you perfectly.

God’s perfect love can eliminate all dread. It’s not our love for Him, but Hisperfect love for us that will cast out our fears.

Are you gripped with fear about something? Do not give in to despair. There is hope. Love is the answer to overcoming your fear because love is the Christian’s security blanket.

When you were a child, did you have a teddy bear or blanket that gave you a sense of security—something you wanted to hold close and get wrapped up in? Well, dear friend, the Holy Spirit of God is the believer’s warm, loving security blanket.

ACTION POINT:

The question isn’t “Am I brave enough?” The question is “Do I trust His love enough?”

  1. There is a love that never fails. God is love. God never fails. Many times and many people have been going about looking for love in all the wrong places. I have acquired heartaches in my life searching for love. But I have been unfair to all the people whom I have tried forcing to fill that God-Shaped hole in my heart. Only God can fill it. I never needed any human being in the past, it has always been and it will always be Jesus for me … from now and to all of eternity. #RestHard

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
