- Fear steals
In time, the hurtful actions of others or our personal choices can make us afraid of outcomes in the future. But there is forgiveness...
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you...Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. - John 14:27
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. - John 10:10
The devil uses fear in your life to increase your guilt when you give in to sin, but God's son Jesus came to earth to set you free from fear, shame, and death!
You can ask Jesus to save you from fear and be King of your life. Simply pray...
"Jesus, I want to trust You with my life. I believe you died on a cross, were buried and resurrected so that I can be free. Thank You for loving me and for the gift of everlasting life and peace." Rely daily on what God says in the Bible and continue seeking a close relationship with Jesus.

You have a fearless future!
The resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?" God's Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who He is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what's coming to us - an unbelievable inheritance! We go through what Christ does. If we go through the hard times with Him, then we're certainly going through the good times with Him!
