Do Not Be Afraid

Psalm 27:1

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom do I fear?

One of the most quoted phrases of Jesus was “Do not be afraid.” So why is there so much “fear-based” religion? Why is there such dwelling on a “reward-punishment” scenario? Jesus virtually never addresses such things (and the scant scriptures that could fit such a scenario could also have a much deeper meaning). Jesus is relentlessly speaking about the “kingdom of God” in the here and now. He is relentlessly leading all the sinners to healing and wholeness without a hint of any threat of retribution. When we follow Jesus and His example of how to live and allow His words to sink into our hearts…we are truly free, fulfilled, alive and whole. So tell me that…what is there to fear?
