29 Sep Matthew 17:7-8
7 And Jesus came to them and touched them and said, “Get up, and do not be afraid.” 8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one except Jesus Himself alone.
No false god that has ever been worshiped by man can show the love and compassion that Jesus does. He came to them and touched them. God defines what He is like and how He should be worshiped. Jesus asks for obedient faith and He expresses concerned love. Do you know Him? Have you felt His touch? Are you obeying His commands? Perfect love casts out fear.
