Episode Summary:

  • We’ve been in the middle of a special series of podcasts about defeating anxiety during times of crisis. In this episode, we talk in depth about the second weapon God gives us to defeat anxiety: His perfect love.
  • John 15:9 tells us, “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.” In order to remain in God’s love, we must first accept that He gives His love, and we must then receive it for ourselves.
  • But His love is crucial for defeating worry, fear, and anxiety in our lives. 1 John 4:18 says, “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.”
  • In this episode, we discuss the things we know to be true about God’s love and the many ways that we can access God’s love to defeat worry, fear, and anxiety in our lives.

 

Because of social distancing, we’ve had to alter the normal ways we’ve expressed love to others. But, read more for 5 ways to be creative and show love to others during a crisis. Creative Ways to Show Love During a Crisis.
