To show love is not a difficult task. But showing a genuine love takes more than your money, kindness, sincerity etc. It requires something more…
If indeed perfect love casteth out fear, then we all need it. Have you ever felt the power of love before?. Have you ever been in love?. How did you feel or how are you feeling right now?. Whether is agape love, romantic love, brotherly love or whatever needs the inspiration of the Holy Spirit before it becomes perfect.
Showing love to people around you is the best kind of gift you could ever give. However, if you don’t allow God to perfect that love, it will certainly fade out. The Bible has made it clear that perfect love casteth out fear. And so there shouldn’t be any fear if you claim to love anyone. It could be your friends, husband, wife, strangers etc.
“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.” ( 1 John 4:18)
“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17)
Love today is questionable. There is a very big loophole in Christian marriages. Take a look at my post on Christian marriages and money issues today. A perfect love casteth out fear, but today genuine love has been substituted with money. Money makes people feel secure than real love.
The Problem With Our Generation
If you agree to the fact that perfect love casteth out fear then you will never be jealous or feel insecure toward the person you claim you love. And if the person makes your heart run a marathon feeling the pains of betrayal and disloyalty then, there is nothing like genuine love for you. Advice yourself.
The problem lies in the hearts of men. They are full of darkness. People fail to be honest. Fake love is everywhere. People love for many different reasons that are not genuine. Watch out for the one who says “I love you.” IT TAKES MORE THAN A MERE WORDS TO MAKE COMPLETE. There might be a hidden agenda.
Finding The True Kind Of Perfect Love
As Christians, we are expected to love each other wholeheartedly. Love is the greatest of all human virtues.
No one loves you more than God. Christ Jesus came to show us what perfect love looks or feels like. Therefore we must follow in the footsteps of Christ Jesus.
There is this special love our mothers show us. I believe you would agree with me that mothers have what it takes to uphold their Children even if it will cost them their lives. A mother’s love is one of the best you could ever think of.
100% Perfect Love Casteth Out Fear
It is not an easy thing to love someone wholeheartedly. To claim you love someone you must be ready to die for that person in question.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)
It takes boldness, sacrifices, and honesty to be a lovable person. A perfect love does not fail. You wouldn’t worry about being broken hearted or used.
“And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. ” (Mark 12:31)
If you ever love someone, there is no need to be afraid. The only thing creating problems is, how people’s character changes when they meet different people or face different challenges. A perfect love casteth out fear of any sort. If you are afraid then that love needs to be upgraded. How?. Pray to God to touch your heart to love unconditionally just like him.
