Sermons about Fear
In Daniel 6 we read of Daniel's consistency in obeying God rather than man. How does he do that when facing certain death? How might we be able to emulate Daniel's faith and not lose heart like King Darius?
There are time when we all experience insecurity and fear. Sure some have more than others, and it may vary in intensity and importance. It may come over different things to different people. And you may even look back at previous times of fear and insecurity and laugh a little now, and shake your head over it, wondering why you were so bothered. But in the middle of it, it all made sense to be scared. What do we do in the midst of fear and insecurity? We all have ways of dealing with it. Some of those ways help, and some do not. In the middle of fear and insecurity, we want a better way, a fix, a help. Today, we look at how God speaks into the fear and insecurity of one of His people. We see how God calls him to pay attention, not to something new, but to something already in progress.

The fear of death is strong. However, God's Word is clear that, as followers of Jesus, we no longer need to fear death. Paul explains this is a hopeful and triumphant passage in 1 Corinthians 15 in which he proclaims that when Jesus returns, God will transform our physical bodies, making them imperishable. The reason for this is because physical decay that leads to death is actually a just judgment for humanity's sin that Jesus paid in full at the Cross for those who belong to Him by grace through faith. Thus, not only do decay and death have no place in God's eternal kingdom, but also death has been redefined from a transition to eternal condemnation to a transition to everlasting life in the presence of our Savior. In light of this, ask yourself, "Do I need an attitude adjustment about death?" With respect to loved ones in Christ who have died, find comfort and encouragement from these verses as you grieve. With respect to your own death, replace fear with peace and security in Jesus.
Have you ever wondered why a prostitute is listed as an example of godly faith? How could a woman whose life revolved around sin teach us about having faith in God? Rahab risked it all on trusting God....shouldn't we?
