Do not fear
Author requests article critique
New King James Version (NKJV)
28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Greetings my brothers and sisters,
Fear has influenced how the world makes it's decisions. Wars have been started due to fear...remember," weapons of mass destruction?" Millions and billions of dollars have been spent due to fear. The pharmaceutical companies benefit from the use of fear.....fear of disease, fear of death and simply " the anxieties of faithless and fearful people." The stock market is driven by fear, the economy is impacted due to fear and the upcoming presidential election will be won or loss due to fear. In the text above Jesus instructs the disciples "do not fear", and only fear God who is able to destroy the body and the soul in hell. The disciples where concerned about their lives and the persecutions that they would have to experience for being disciples of Jesus Christ. The bible declares that those who live godly shall suffer persecutions. Even now we go through trials, tribulations and persecutions which are unavoidable but rest assured we are too valuable to God for these things to take us out before our time and before His will is completed in our lives. The old folks used to say," God will not put more on us than we can bear." In the same chapter the Lord declares," Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows." Yes, brothers and sisters we are more valuable than many sparrows....God eyes is on the sparrow and I know he watches us! Do not fear.
