“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him”.-1 John 4:16
There are many people in the world today that don’t fully trust God. Usually, it’s one of three things: People are afraid that if they give their lives fully to God, they’ll lose their freedom, they’ll lose their fun, and God will turn them into some kind of religious fanatic.
None of that sounds inviting!
The bottom line is, people are afraid. Yet, God has an answer for our fear of trusting Him. The Bible says, “We know the love that God has for us, and we trust that love because God’s perfect love drives out fear”. God loves you and me. We were created as an act of God’s love. Over and over in the Bible, God makes this clear. God thought us up and created us to love ourselves and let us love Him.
The greatest expression of God’s love is Jesus. God came to Earth in the form of a human being to show us what He is really like. He, then showed us how much He loved us by dying on the cross. The cross tells us once and for all that we can fully trust God. We can trust Him with our lives because He gave His Son’s life for us.
If God is telling the truth in His Word that He loves us, we know He won’t take away our freedom or our fun or turn us into a fanatic. God isn’t a cosmic killjoy. He’s our Heavenly Father.
The more you know God, the more you trust Him!
