Love conquers fear
Do you feel fear when it comes to connecting with God’s people? Maybe it’s that feeling of vulnerability, or maybe you’ve been hurt by other christians. Whatever it is don’t let fear keep you from one of the biggest blessings of our faith.
Whether your fear is subdued or strong, rational or irrational, fear freezes you in whatever area it consumes.
When you let fear run your life, you close yourself off from anything that might hurt you or make you uncomfortable, including opportunities to know God’s love through the love of His people. “ perfect love drives out fear”( 1 John 4:18). And one place we can experience godly love is in community with other believers.
So if you’re feeling fear of connecting, take it as a cue to say no to letting life pass you by, and yes to love.
