The following is an adaptation of Sylvester Bishop Robinson’s recent guest teaching.
God's love is what calls me to be the way I am. If you would have met me before His love, you probably wouldn't have liked me. I couldn't change myself, as a matter of fact, I didn't want to change. I was enjoying my life, at least I thought I was. I was a drinking cussing sailor at 20 years old, trying to be all that a sailor could be. I'm sure that many of you have been good all your lives, but I have history to mine but God loved me in spite of me and He has caused His love to mature in me and because of that, as He is, so I am.
Perfect love casts out all fear and you need to know that fear involves torment and that means you have to start getting up every day and confessing over your life that you’re full of God's love, and fear you have to leave my house right now because you have an eviction notice to get on up out of here! You have to make up in your mind that you refuse to live a tormented life but allow the love of God to flow freely in your life and that alone will produce peace in your life that will surpass your understanding.
The cross is evidence that God loved us enough to send Jesus and John 3:16 makes all the sense in the world to me, for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
