Facing our Fears

Facing our Fears

How are Christians to face their fear? What is our source of courage in the face of suffering? In this message we explore the very real and legitimate place that fear has; after all the sting of death is sin! And yet we are called as Christians to be ‘more than conquerors.’ But our victory is not found in ourselves; we are not our own champions. Rather our champion is Jesus Christ, the Davidic figure who laid down his armour and weapons, who left the riches of heaven and experienced poverty for us. This means that we still feel fear, we still need courage, but because our confidence is in ourselves, and we know that Jesus Christ has extinguished the power of death, and thus we can experience joy and hope that is over and beyond the suffering we are facing. Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory!
