How To Not Fear

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind

2 Timothy 1:7

If God does not give us a spirit of fear, then why are we still afraid?

It says in 1 John 4:18 “…but he who fears has not been made perfect in love”. We fear because love is not been made complete in us yet. As it says in John 17:26 “…that the love¬†with which You loved Me may be in them”, Jesus is praying for all believers and wants all Christians to have the same love, that the Father loves the son with, to “be in them”. May we desire to have God’s love in us, working through us, to love others with God’s love.
