Defining Fear / LIFE HAPPENS



Today's encouragement comes from Romans 8:15 (NIV), "The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship…"

Simply put, we should not act like people who are owned or controlled by the world or we will live in a state of constant fear. Instead, we should live as children of God- protected, loved, forgiven and redeemed.

Fear robs us of our joy and causes us distress.

Fear may make us hide.
