There is a popular song that says, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love,” and while the world and even Christians seek more love, so many souls are falling into the trap of being afraid to love. Yet God’s desire is for his children to learn the truth of his nature—that he is love.
Why are people afraid of love? addresses this fear of loving and being loved, especially in this generation in which there is a worldwide epidemic of failed relationships. Author Rev. Tony K. Thomas invites you to look inside your soul and make some necessary personal adjustments when it comes to relationship building, by simply asking the question, “Am I afraid of love?” The answer can be revealing, as God’s Spirit reveals to your heart and soul his love and your ability to love.
God wants to remove our fear of loving, and he will help you during this season of singleness. If you have had failed relationships or encounters, or if you are married now but didn’t get off to the smooth start you were expecting after the “I do,” Why are people afraid of love? can remind you of the origin and power of love that comes from above. As 1 John 4:18 says, perfect love will show fear the door.
