Fear Not: Trusting God One Promise at a Time (Advent 2016)

Fear is universal. And it’s not all bad. Good fear protects us from danger and prevents us from hurting ourselves. We need it to stay safe. But that’s not the only kind of fear we experience in life. Bad fear paralyzes us from doing what we ought to do and provokes us to doing what we ought not to do. Sadly, this kind of fear is far more common. But if Immanuel (“God with us”) has come, then we can step into God’s future for us with these encouraging words ringing in our hearts: “Fear not!” (Twitter Hashtag: #FearNot)
