1 John 4:1-6
Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Know what's a great feeling when you're a kid? If someone threatens you and another person sticks up for you, someone more powerful than you, you feel pretty good to have that person on your side. Or maybe your boss at work stands up for you in a meeting -feels good, right?
Well, in reality, whenever you go into the world, the Spirit of the living God, the same spirit that moved over the waters in the beginning of time and created the entire world, that Spirit goes with you whenever you act or speak. That same Spirit is with you, and if you trust in the Spirit, it will lead you forward So no matter what threatens you, you need not be afraid, because the Spirit of the Living God is with you always. Listen to God -- don't let the other voices in the world lead you to a place of fear. God is with you!!!
