Romans 8:15 (NKJV) For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
No Fear. A popular bumper sticker but nothing but false bravado unless backed up by a transcendent and divine knowledge from God’s Word that tells us what the future holds, and that we are safe and secure in God’s hands.
Otherwise, you have MUCH to fear. A life without the blessed assurances of God and the gift of eternal life is an existence ruled by unpredictable circumstances of which only one thing is for sure: if things are not bad now, just hang on, they will be soon. Even worse, there are a thousand ways you could die this very day and spend an eternity separated from your Creator who loves you, but also demands an accounting of your life.
Fear! Fear! Fear… that’s the truthful message for those who don’t know God. For those who do: NO FEAR! God the Father is not surprised by a single event in our life and there is nothing that can remove you from the security of His gracious and all-powerful hand.
Think It Over: Do you proclaim the false “No Fear!” the world offers? Or the true “No Fear!” that only comes by placing your faith and trust in Jesus who died to save you from your sins and reserve your place in Heaven NO MATTER WHAT happens in this life? That is the only true “no fear” available to us.
