‘That you may have certainty’ A series on the book of Luke. Join us Sunday
This Sunday we kick off our fall series on the book of Luke. We are going to look carefully at this key book in the months to come as we look at Doctor Luke’s gospel so we may have certainty in what we believe.
Pastor Dan is going to be starting us off.
If you want to prepare, please read Luke 1:1-4.

Thought for the day: Be filled with love
Tuesday I talked a bit about fear. Here’s another way of looking at this issue. God is love and those who follow God must also be filled with love. If we want to get rid of fear, we must replace it with something. If we keep our minds empty, fear can easily return. That’s why we read in 1 John 4:18: “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” Now, here’s one of the most important keys to getting rid of fear: We must be filled with love. We can cast out fear with love.
Love is an affection and emotion that does NOT produce any fear. In fact, if we truly love God, we should not fear anything. We don’t need to fear death because after death, if we are secure with God, we can be confident that we will meet our Creator during our next waking moment. As long as we have love in our hearts and lives, we can expect fear to never bother us. The moment that our love wavers, that’s the same moment that fear starts to creep in again.
When love prevails, fear stops from existing.
When love overcomes, fear is suppressed.
And when love reigns, fear is banished.
Sounds pretty good, huh? Let’s be filled with love!
