30 Days With Wesley: Everything Is Nothing

"...and everything that does not come from faith is sin" (Romans 14:23).

Everything.

Every.  Thing.

What things in your life are motivated by faith?  What things are motivated by fear?  Not "fear of the Lord" but "fear of (fill in the blank with.......rejection...losing a loved one...or a job...or a house or material thing...missing your true purpose...or any other of a great number of things you or I might be afraid of)."

The Scriptures tell us that "perfect love drives out fear" and that "the one who fears is not made perfect in love" (I John 4:18).  And Jesus says, "be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father in perfect" (Matthew 5:48).

We cannot do it on our own.



"Nothing is impossible with God" (Luke 1:37).

Nothing.

No.  Thing.
