Do Not Fear Congregational Guide

Follow Me Year 3
Product Description
Do Not Fear
It’s been said that the phrase do not fear appears 365 times in Scripture. Paul writes in Romans 8 that that we did not receive a spirit of fear, and that nothing can separate us from God’s love. Nearly every time an angel from God shows up with a new assignment for one of the biblical characters, they come with a message: “Do not fear.” Still, whether there are enough utterances of “do not be afraid” in Scripture to give us a unique reminder every day, the idea remains that the command to put away fear is comprehensive—whatever trials befall us, we can remember that we are created for faith, not fear.

In this unit, participants will learn that the command to “do not fear” does not mean that there is nothing to be afraid of—it means that God will walk with us through whatever fears we have. We will not eradicate fear, but we can move through it, and through studying this practice we can see how we must not let fear paralyze us from holy actions. The four dimensions of the practice that are discussed include: tuning into God’s presence, trusting God’s promises, taking one step at a time, and persevering.
