“There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. So the one who fears has not reached perfection in love. We love because He first loved us.”

1 John 4:18-19 HCSB

This year has been one of training in courage: doing hard things in the face of fear. I have not conquered fear, and I don’t even know what that would mean. But I am learning to push through the fear to move forward boldly—to have those tough conversations instead of sweeping things under the rug. Because of love, God had tough confrontations with Moses and Job faced off with his accusers. Jesus had to be afraid of the horrible torture he would endure, but He shed his own will to bear the shame and pain of the cross so that you and I could know eternal life. What hard thing do you need to step out in faith to do today? 🚦
