There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18I can approach God with wow and awe, not fear of is presence. Because of the relationship I have with the Holy Spirit, I know I can call my father – Abba Father. He wants me to draw near to Him. In fact, He said draw nigh unto me and I will draw nigh unto you. I think if you take one step or even glance in His direction, He runs the rest of the distance. He is looking for that measure of faith He has given to you to be acted upon. . He has shown me his heart by sending Jesus. He has shown me his love by having Jesus die for me. If he loves me that much, then I can trust that his desire is to save and bless me. I don’t have to fear his presence or his judgment as I continue to serve him. As his child, his love should drive fear from my heart and replace it with love from his abiding presence in my life, the Holy Spirit.
