The first characteristic of man’s sinful nature was fear. When Adam fell, he feared before he hated. Fear is the force that is opposite to the love of God. People hate because they are afraid. Fear is so deceptive because we are so quick to embrace it. It is not shameful to admit fear though we all know better than to acknowledge hatred. One of the most important skills that a Christ-follower can master is a resistance to fear. If we are not taught how this process works, we will give into fear consistently. We must educate ourselves to the fact that the effects of fear are more dangerous to us than the feelings of fear. You can defeat fear even when you feel afraid! God has equipped His children with the tools that neutralize fear no matter how powerful it may seem. Whatever your fear may be, this series will equip you to beat it!
