“Fear Not!”

“Fear Not!” is the November Sermon Series!  Recent events such as the Jewish Synagogue where eleven people were killed, the volatility of the stock market, racial tension, gun violence, religion intolerance, and political indifference is driving fear for many people.  People are fearful of never getting married, fearful of losing a job, of not being able to pay the mortgage.  We have fear of the unknown, fear of intimacy, and even fear of commitment.  One of the realities of this life is fear of things.  These are real concerns and fear seems reasonable to a person, even when it appears irrational.  But fear drives us away from God and reveals our desire to control the circumstances before us.  The number one command in the Bible is “Fear Not,” and it’s also a loving invitation to trust God.
