The most paralyzing of fears is the fear of man. It stops millions of Christians from reaching out to the lost. This is a terrible thing because it is hindering them from being true and faithful witnesses. Do you want God to say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servant”? Then cast off fear and lift up the shield of faith that God has given to you (see Eph. 6:13–16). If God is for you, nothing can be against you. See yourself as a doctor with a cure to cancer, and say with the disciples, “We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20).
“A foolish physician he is, and a most unfaithful friend, that will let a sick man die for fear of troubling him; and cruel wretches are we to our friends, that will rather suffer them to go quietly to hell, then we will anger them, or hazard our reputation with them.” Richard Baxter
Isaiah 35:4 Say to those who are fearful-hearted, Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you.
