Neal spoke on spiritual fear and freedom.
Fear stops us doing what we want to do because of the consequences of our action. We have heard of the expression “Frozen with fear” and today we looked at how fear affects us in our walk with God.
1. Research has found that the major barrier to mission is the paralysing fear of rejection. The name of the game is safety and not the risk of faith. If we keep waiting for the right moment, nothing can go wrong because the right moment never actually comes. How do you feel about this statement, have you experienced this yourself and how do we move from “safety” to “faith”?
2. R.T Kendall says “ Better for us to have a healthy fear of God than an unhealthy fear of man” - Proverbs 29 vs 25 says “ The fear of man is a trap but whoever puts his trust in the Lord will be safe”.
Why do we have a fear of man and worry so much about what other people think of us? Does this hold us back in our walk with God?
