United in Prayer, Unlimited in Power As We Link to the Father

Hi everyone, I would like to share what God encouraged me recently.
When I try to invite my friends to the events of the church, I sometimes have fear. Probably, I am afraid to be disliked by them and many negative thoughts come up into my mind. "She may think me to be persistent, bothersome or fanatical." Then I try to find the reason which I can escape into, " It's not the time of God. Next time, I will do", something like that. However, I cannot deceive myself. Yes, I just feared.

"Why I am so weak? " I asked myself and read the Bible. God gave me the proper answer; 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. 1 John 4-18

His words not only encouraged me but also set me free from the pressure that I should be strong in faith.
What lacked in me was Love. Love to others.

I prayed God to help me and invited my friend. She e-mailed me " Yes, I am happy to join"
I thanked God for reminding me of the essence of Gospel.

Amen, sister! I'm in the process of desiring to love others now. It's so difficult, but it must be done!

Hello Cecille, thanks for your encouragement.
Being a good witness of His salvation is being filled with His love. We need to keep us in His love.
Love for Jesus produces the energy in us to love for others, I have experienced this fact. Love leads us proper way to touch their hearts. Because what people expect is to be loved. Otherwise, I would be just cymbals or drums annoying them.
