We must give no ground to suspicion and fear. We love our brothers; we do not fear them. First John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”
It is always a temptation to know others’ attitude toward us, how they consider us, and what they have said about us. In order to realize the church life, we must reject this temptation. We must have no suspicion. We believe in the Lord and consider that all the brothers are good. Therefore, there is no need to know too much. Regardless of how others consider us and talk about us, we are in the hand of the Lord. If we practice in this way, the door will be closed to the enemy.
