“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18.
I must not fear the ending.
If I die, there will be judgment. How will I do on Judgment Day?
When I owned up to being a sinner and realized that there would be consequences for my sinfulness, I was afraid. And rightly so.
When I realized that God had done something about my sins and their consequences, I was interested in knowing more.
When I believed that Jesus had died specifically for my sins, I accepted what He had done for me.
When I realized that there was more than sin clearance available from God, I wanted more.
When I brought His Holy Spirit into my life to run it, I enabled Him to guide me in rightly representing Him.
Fear? My future is in His Care. He is with me now and He will be with me in the after-life.
Judgment Day will be a test I am certain to ace. Why? My sins and their consequences have been taken care of. Before a holy and righteous God, I stand completely in the clear! Hallelujah.
Conclusion: I must live now with His overwhelming Love overflowing everywhere I can reach.
