Do Not Be Afraid!

“There is no place for selfishness—and no place for fear!

Do not be afraid, then, when love makes demands.

Do not be afraid when love requires sacrifice”–Pope John Paul II

Today, this quote from Pope John Paul II really spoke to my heart.

FEAR. How many times has fear held use back from doing what God asks of us?

So many times we can make excuses for why we can’t do something.

And most of those excuses come from a deep fear inside of us, don’t they?

Our love for God will always challenges us to move beyond our fears.

Loving God is not a static position.

Loving God is a constant transformation to selfless, agape love.

What fears hold you back from selflessly responding to God’s call?
