Fearful of the New Year and what it brings with it? If you believe in Jesus, remember what drives out fear: “perfect love” and that is, God!
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” ~1 John 4:18
“God is love.” ~1 John 4:8
Dr. Martin Luther explains it in this way,
“For perfect or pure love springs from the confidence that constantly takes hold of God.” ~Luthers Works, Volume 30, 1 John 4:18
Therefore, for this new year,
“we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea.” ~Psalm 46:2
Happy, loving, and blessed new year to you, in Christ Jesus, our Love, our Life, our Friend, our Eternity!
