Psalm 130:7

For with the LORD is mercy, with him is plenteous redemption.

I minister to many older people and what I see over and over are people who are afraid of God.

They have a deep-seated fear of punishment.

How sad this is when scripture tells us that “God is love” (1 John 4:8) and that “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).

We are immersed in the Love of God like a fish in water.

As St. Paul put it, in God we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).

And so we can reiterate today’s scripture verse that with God is mercy or we could also say endless love.

Therefore, do not fear as Jesus stated over and over.

God is in the redemption business.

We are being made whole moment by moment as we let go of our need to control, as we let go of all the masks we have fashioned to construct a “false self.”

Only then will we be able to live as the “true self” we are, the true self we were always made to be.
