What to Fear and What Not to Fear

“That I’ll do something or say something that will bring some disrepute on the gospel of Christ before I go”–Billy Graham, speaking of his greatest fear.

“What was most surprising to us . . . was how completely disarming he was. We were struck by his humility, the gentleness, the quiet, confident grace. He seemed perhaps the most unguarded man I’ve ever interviewed”–Nancy Gibbs, speaking of her interview with Billy Graham.

“Do not fear, for God has come to test you, that the fear of him may be before you, that you may not sin”–Exodus 20:20.

“Fear the Lord and turn away from evil”–Proverbs 3:7.

“The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? The Lord is with me; he is my helper. I look in triumph on my enemies. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans”–Psalm 118:6-8.

“Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell. What is the price of two sparrows–one copper penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father”–Matthew 10:28-29, NLT.

“So we can say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?’ “–Hebrews 13:6.
