Luke 12...Do not fear
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on." Luke 12:22
Do not fear! How can you say that when you just announced there would be those who may die for the faith? Do not be anxious! How can you say that when there would be those who would be arrested for their faith?
Truly fear and anxiety are incapacitating. These emotions cripple the believer from believing the truth and operating in the power of the Spirit. The truth is that He cares for us and the responsibility is to always be in service to the Master as we await His coming.
Therefore do not be afraid, our soul is eternally secure. Do not be anxious, it does nothing for you anyway.
