Fear and Confidence

Today’s reading:

Luke 11:37-13:9

My selection:

“I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do.  But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him!  Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God.  Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.”  Luke 12:4-7

Fear and Confidence

Jesus said we ought to both fear God and trust Him.  He holds all power, including the power to cast us into hell.  But He also knows and cares for a lowly sparrow.

Do you have a right fear of God coupled with unshakeable confidence in His love and care?  Think about it.
