18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear;
for fear has to do with punishment,
and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.1 John 4:18
Today I attended a luncheon where a chaplain who had worked with police and spoken around the world shared a song, “You love away my fears.” I thought of the people we pondered this week. Zacchaeus hid in a tree because he wanted to see Jesus but was afraid and too short. A blind beggar hears Jesus passing and gathers his courage and voice and cries out, “Son of David, have mercy on me.” Servants entrusted with money are left to manage a nobleman’s investments until he returns from a trip.
I did not find the exact song on the Internet but I did find a similar song that is new to me and so I share with you about the affects of faith on fear. It is modern and upbeat. You will not hear it on Sunday but it captures the joy of Palm Sunday and the joy of those who interacted with Jesus this week. They praised and this song praises. Enjoy!
