Romans 8:15 says “you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.” In part 2 of this series about Facing Fear, Pastor Steve continues teaching about freedom from fear with some examples from the history of Israel.
There’s an unfailing source of encouragement for every believer, and in today’s episode Brother Steve begins with the words that Jesus used to encourage his disciples before one of the most challenging times in their lives. John 14:27 declare “Peace” to us who are His—and it’s not the temporary peace that the world gives.
As Jesus prepared his disciples for an event they could not even imagine, He prepared Himself for the greatest sacrifice in all of history. Good Friday was no disaster, but a carefully prepared triumph that we can now see with perfect hindsight. Join me in preparing for this joyful celebration with some meditations on the Victory!
