Fear or courage? by Gary Rose

Cute picture!  My dog just runs away (as far as possible).  But, what about humans? The instinct for self-preservation is very strong and we all have heard stories about people doing outlandish things- just to stay alive!

However, fear has become reality for us all. When we saw the twin towers come down in 9-11-01 it ushered in a new era; one of Islamic terrorism. We see images of Muslim terrorism on almost a daily basis and the barbarism of this cult is almost beyond belief. Christians are being killed, daily. WE ARE BEING INVADED, thanks to a monster in the white house. It is very possible that in a short while our situation will be like Germany, with Muslims wreaking havoc on a daily basis.

Be concerned, but do not worry. We all will die someday, so why not make our life stand for something, or rather- SOMEONE!

And that someone is Jesus. Consider HIS words...

Matthew, Chapter 10 (World English Bible)
  24  “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his lord.   25  It is enough for the disciple that he be like his teacher, and the servant like his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more those of his household!   26 Therefore don’t be afraid of them, for there is nothing covered that will not be revealed; and hidden that will not be known.   27  What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in the ear, proclaim on the housetops.   28  Don’t be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

Now is the time to show what you are made of. Now is the time to practice what verse 27 teaches. Now is the time to have courage and fear only God!!!

Remember the words of the Psalmist...

Psalm 118 (World English Bible)
 6 Yahweh is on my side. I will not be afraid. 
What can man do to me?
