Humanity’s greatest fear?

Fear is not final. It can always be resisted. When you’re feeling fear, fight it until it flees.

Fear is an opportunity to show courage. Without fear courage isn’t necessary.

The fear of letting people see what’s truly going on inside your heart may be humanity’s greatest fear. Dare to overcome it!

Every time you humbly let people see inside your heart you engage in an act of courage. It often takes more courage to resist tormenting thoughts, feelings, and desires than it does to resist physical dangers.

It takes courage to be led by the Spirit, especially when He leads you to do (or say) something you don’t want to do! The Holy Spirit wants to lead you outside of your comfort zone so that He can be your Comforter.

Courageous Christianity and comfortable Christianity aren’t the same thing. It takes courage to trust in Jesus — to rely on Him instead of on your own plans, study, and effort. Revival happens when Christians are more afraid of quenching God’s Spirit than they are of being embarrassed.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
