“Fear is a manifestation of the places in our lives where we do not feel loved and cared for.”

-Philip Carlson, You Were Made for Love

“There is no darkness at all in heaven. That means that when we stand in heaven, there is not even a trace of fear or shame or condemnation. There will be no fear of rejection because those who have been saved by the blood of Jesus will stand knowing without any doubt that they are so loved and welcome. Totally accepted and confident in the love of God. Try to imagine what it feels like to sense no form of judgement or disapproval, and instead to feel entirely loved and accepted as one who is the very apple of God’s eye. This is what sinners felt when they encountered Jesus. This is the atmosphere of heaven.”

-Katherine Ruonala, excerpt from her recent newsletter
