Fear is another barrier to love. In fact, fear is the biggest barrier to love. Where there is fear, love is absent. Where love abides, fear is driven away. The beautiful thing about love is that no matter the situation, we can choose love over fear. No matter how much fear we might be experiencing, we can make a mental decision for love.
When we choose love, miracles happen. I know of an incident of road-rage that was transformed by the power of love. A driver felt he had been cut off in traffic which caused him to spill his beer. He followed the car that he believed had created his predicament to the next exit where the other driver stopped for gas. He approached the car, accused the driver of costing him to lose his beer and demanded the beer be replaced. The tension was high and a fight seemed imminent. One of the passengers said to the man that in the name of Jesus he loved him. Silence fell over the situation. No one seemed to know what to say, and eventually the man turned and silently walked away.
Love doesn’t necessarily avoid all danger, but when we call upon love, things change. Mostly, love changes us, and ultimately it affects those touched by it, even if they refuse to see it or believe it. But when we live our lives in fear, we block love. When we allow love to rule our lives, we move beyond fear and become warriors of Love and Light.
