Christ Died To Redeem Us

 

1 John 4:18

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.

What of Today’s Verse…

What is there to fear if God sent his Son to die to redeem us? What is there to fear if we cannot be separated from the love God has for us in Christ Jesus? What is there to fear except ourselves? As we love God and his children, we are reminded by his love for us, which is far better than our meager love for others. Rather than run from him in fear, we bow before him in thanks, knowing that he who hears our prayers is also he who loves us and stops our fears.

Let us Pray:

Loving Father, thank you that I can revere you without fearing your wrath. Thank you that I can revere your word and yet not be terrified by my inadequacies. May your love in me produce a closer likeness to your holiness, righteousness, justice, and mercy than all the laws, threats, and judges combined. Through Jesus, who ransomed me from sin, I pray. Amen.

Words of Wisdom

Forgive

My heart is open to greater expressions of peace and joy.

My decisions are always a matter of choice, and I choose not to hold a grudge or harbor hard feelings toward anyone. This choice is for my own well-being as well as for the other person. I realize that any unforgiveness I would let into my heart would be a block to the flow of love.

With two simple but powerful words, I forgive, I break barriers, melt resistance, and open my heart to experience greater peace and joy. As I practice forgiveness, I claim my oneness with God and see the good in all. I view myself and others with compassion and the assurance that we are equally and unconditionally loved by God.

I forgive myself and I forgive others, which prepares the way for a new beginning–a resurrection of my heart that leaves me both peaceful and joyful.

“Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”–Luke 23:34
