October 24th 2017 – Love or Fear

“for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision.” (Galatians 2:12)

Are you afraid of people? While we often think of that question in terms of physical harm, the reality is that most of the time our fear of others is a fear of rejection or ridicule. This fear leads us to disobedience or apathy.

One of the primary examples of this is our fear to witness to others. We have the greatest news in the world and yet alot of people are afraid to share it because of what someone may think. Imagine if the apostle Paul was fearful of men. We would not have a large chunk of the New Testament or the spread of the Gospel. Paul put aside his fear of others because he had a healthy fear of the Lord. In other words, his love for the Lord trumped his fear of people. Step out today and be a witness. God is with you and He can use that one step of faith for something amazing.

(Proverbs 29:25) “The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.”


Heavenly Father , Thank You for Your love and grace. Help me to love others much more then fear. Give me boldness to tell the Truth about You. Lord, I want to extend the same grace You have given me to others. I need You. Please work in my life and in my heart. I surrender it ALL to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen

    “Fear not man, but fear Him who has the power over the second death” Father, thank You that in Jesus, we we have judged ourself guilt of sinning against You, and have asked for Your Mercy in joining Jesus in His death, burial, and resurrection, that “there ins now no more condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” And “that You have given us Spirit of Holy Boldness, Your Holy Spirit Of True Life in Jesus, and Your perfect LOVE for us in Christ, casts out all fear.” We praise You for Your Great Love for us in JESUS,Amen👑
