We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.
We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING, where we’re looking at what Jesus said on a wide variety of subjects with a minimum of commentary from me.
Today’s topic? FEAR. Jesus made it pretty simple …
Fear only God:
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. (Matthew 10:28; Luke 12:4-5)
Fear nothing in this world:
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. (Luke 12:32)
Don’t be afraid; just believe. (Mark 5:36; Luke 8:50, 12:6-7)
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. (John 14:1)
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)
Take heart! I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
