New Life – Faith to Fear
In life we face many legitimate fears such as uncertainty, the unknown, pain, loss, failure and death. When we live with our focus on fear of death we can focus inordinately on our earthly legacy, attempting to “leave something to be remembered by”, and in so doing we may hurt those we care about most.
God did not give us a spirit of timidity but one of power, love and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7) and we are not meant to live under the dominance of fear. The reality of eternal life, when it is truly understood and embraced, will work its way back to the way we live (John 11:25-26). We don’t need to live under the terrorism of death. We are in the hands of God and we can live by faith instead of fear!
