I am really starting to hate fear more every day. Fear has robbed us so much of what Jesus is trying to teach us and do for us. All I want is the true fear of God in my life, and that will be all the fear I need. God help us! John I am so thankful for you and what God has been showing us through you, and I am not going to be afraid to trust it, and follow it, wherever that takes us.
From what I have experienced and seen, Stuart, I have to say that nothing more effectively robs God’s saints of genuine fellowship than simple fear. That fact may be the reason the apostle John taught that faith overcomes the world. Real faith is as fearless as is the love of God.
