What Do You Fear?

Fear has a way of paralyzing our ability to act, leaving us helpless to take the needed action to overcome whatever it is we are afraid of. For some it is a fear of failing, for others pain and probably for all of us, there is the fear of dying.

What about God? Do you fear God? For most Christians, we would say, “No, I don’t fear God, I love him because he loves me!” And that would be a good answer. Still, there are dozens of verses in the Bible which speak of the necessity of fearing God. In fact, it isn’t until we learn to have a healthy fear of God that we are able to fully overcome the other fears in our lives.

This Sunday we are going to start a new sermon series entitled “Facing Fear with Jesus”. Maybe you are worried about the future or taking on a new responsibility or entering a relationship. We’ll be looking at those things which cause us to be afraid to move ahead in our lives and what Jesus says about them. But the basis of any victory over fear in this life begins with a proper fear of God.

Join us for one of our weekend services and start overcoming your fears.
