When Love Meets Fear

Scripture: I John 4:18 - 5:1

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

Fear reduces our ability to be ourselves. When we are afraid, we feel something awful is going to happen. We fear judgment and rejection. We can even fear loving and being loved. Divine love casts out fear. We must admit our fear. Feel our fear. Declare the love of God. Risk loving in the midst of fear. Act in faith--fear is no longer in your way.

Getting Back on Track

Scripture: I John 3:1-7

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

What happens when our Christian life get off track? What happens when we violate what we know is right? Many people withdraw from God and let sin take its course. Let us remember who we are! Let us remember our true goals in life! Let us remember Jesus forgives sin! Let us abide in Christ! Let us turn from the wrong and turn to the right. Let us refuse to be deceived!
