From the Pastor's Desk

“And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.” 2 Cor. 5:15.

Fear is self-protecting.  Love is self-giving. Sometimes God’s people fail to realise and embrace the truth that God made them to live without fear.  They are not meant to fear:

·       Old age

·       Genetic predisposition to illness

·       Financial loss

·       Burglary

·       A future without blessing and breakthrough

One of the most serious aspects of fear is that it is paralysing.  It leaves you ‘right where you are,’ with no forward progress and it torments you in ‘that place.’ 

The anti-dote or prescription for fear, is love.  Love God.  Love your family. Love your neighbours.  Love the church family.  Love your community.  Love your city. Love the lost…wherever they are.  Love and fear are mutually exclusive. 

You cannot live in fear and live in love simultaneously.  Your lifestyle decisions will reflect the selfishness of fear or the trust, inherent in loving. 

Let God take care of ‘your stuff.’  Look after others ‘stuff’ by lovingly serving them.  You will be taken care of by a great loving Heavenly Father!
