No Fear

No Fear

Luke 12:7 Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

There are many things on earth which cause us to fear and tremble. However Scripture encourages us not to fear the things of earth because these things can only harm our mortal body and after that can do us no more harm.

We're much more than just a body. We're heart and soul as well. We're all very concerned about taking care of our body, but do we show the same concern about taking care of our soul? We should be encouraged to do so because our Heavenly Father places great value on it. He values our soul so much that He sent the Lord Jesus to be the Saviour of our soul.

The next time you notice a flock of sparrows, think about how much care and concern God has for them. We're told that not one sparrow in the whole world falls to the ground without our Heavenly Father knowing about it! Think about the millions of sparrows around the world and then think about the greatness of the God who knows what each one of them is doing, every second of every day! If God knows and cares for sparrows in this way, how much must He know and care about us? With this in mind we should be encouraged not to fear the things of earth. Think about how much value God has placed on our soul and how much it cost Him in order to deliver us safely into His Heavenly Kingdom. It cost Him the death of His Son on the cross of Calvary. He gave everything for us, and so we should also give everything for Him.
