Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

I was watching a documentary recently in which a church leader said something along the lines of this:
"Your love for God is mainly driven by your fear of hell."
And I thought to myself, "Well, that just seems wrong.  It doesn’t seem Biblical at all. I thought the whole point of being given the choice between Jesus and Satan was so that we could truly love instead of being forced into it.  There should be no fear about choosing freely."
So there it is… there is no fear in love.  The Word of God says so.

"You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. Everyone will hate you because of me. But not a hair of your head will perish. Stand firm, and you will win life."
