Fearless love means that your heart is hidden and sacred. Acquiring and sustaining a love for God and wrapping yourself in His mercy is a deeply profound feeling … one which encompasses you and encourages you on a daily basis to displace self-righteousness with unwavering humility.
Love is being honest with yourself at all times. Being honest with other individuals at all times … telling, listening, respecting the truth and never pretending or sacrificing your morals. Love overcomes resentment and alleviates sadness. Love embraces and looks through the eyes of others. Love means two hearts can beat together when there is a reluctance to go it alone. Love is the root of passion and taking in a daily situation, being able to embody a patience and understanding with our respective needs and desires.
1 John 4:17-19:
The Consummation of Love
“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.”
I read this verse today and it resonated immensely. In the book of Matthew, Jesus tells us the greatest commandments are to love God and to also love one another. If there’s any doubt, the passage from 1 John above gives us crystal clear instruction. When we embody a passionate love for God and others … living and walking in the Spirit … we are able to discern that the spirit of fear does not come from above. If we still have doubts …
2 Timothy 1:7:
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
