Human or eros love has little room for the truth, for truth can never come between it or the object of its desire. There is fusion and harmony in both the agape love and the truth of God. There is no gap in God's love and truth because it is fulfilled completely in Him for all time. Therefore we must live in His truth filled love within, as this brings forth strength and honor to us, and all glory to the One who gave Himself for us.
Whatever we do in word or deed we must do so with the peace of God abiding in our hearts. There is a great temptation to let people take our peace away. This happens whenever we become angry, bitter, or vengeful when others do not respond favorably to the kindness we bring them. Our God gives us peace in the midst of the storm, and calls us to love even our enemies. Do not let others rob the peace of God within you.

Sincerity is not truth and often sincerely wrong. No one but God can tell you who you are, what to believe, or how to live. When you discover truth for yourself, you will never let anyone snatch it. We are told what we should think and how we should live our lives based on what others may think is correct. But you are an individual; know what you believe, stand within it, and let the truths of God permeate your being.

The fear of God should not be induced by fear of judgment. It is in knowing the depth and kindness of a God who is willing to share His love, nature, and authority with mankind. Happy are those that humble themselves before the majesty, power, and sovereign grace of God. Embracing the revelation of the amazing wonders of our God is the beginning of wisdom, and the beginning of a life in pursuit of His Kingdom glory.

No matter how long we have had communion and friendship with God, there is a mysterious depth in relationship that has no limit or end. When we come into this sweet relationship, we are beginning to learn breathless adoration of the attributes of our God and His ever increasing presence in our lives. These perceptions and the consciousness of His divine Presence reveal what the Bible calls "the fear of God".

|God's ability to move on people's life is not to the endorsement of the people, place, or thing God may use as an instrument. It is however an endorsement of a great God who desires to touch and transform people's lives, while utilizing various people and conditions to accomplish His will and His work. In this way, no man can take the glory for signs, wonders, or the latest or greatest of human creativity.|

We must be more concerned with our character than our reputation, because our character is who we really are, all the time. Our reputation is merely what others may think we are. A real testimony of God's grace occurs when our character is lined up with God's nature, and His will for us as His children. May our reputation to others be a reputation of a life lived for the services of God and for the glory of His name.
