Some preachers deliver a message of fear through fire and brimstone – thus many in the flock fear God. Since that is not my background, I have often pondered how that message conflicts with my view as I see God through a different lens.
I see a God of love, life, and peace.
I see a God of trust, compassion, joy, glory, and endless mercy.
I see a God who is full of infinite wisdom, forgiveness, grace, and goodness.
I see a God who is a firm foundation, an anchor for life, a positive beacon of hope, a guiding light, and a sunshine of everlasting life.
I simply see a God that is good – so how can I be fearful?
