The most paralyzing of fears is the fear of man.

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.

    Thank you for these beautiful ‘evidences’ and thank you for your desperate love for the Lord Jesus. It stretches me and fills me with joy, exuberantly! Love the Richard Baxter quote. Just downloaded his 1830 edition of Practical Works of (23 volumes over 600 pages each!) and am indexing it right now with Adobe Acrobat software so I’ll be looking it up to read the entire ‘white paper’. Wonderful use of these great writer’s God enthralled quotes. Love emersing myself in theird writings. Allows me to delve deeper and deeper with aplomb, into the Word of our Lord Jesus Christ (whose name I love). Praise His holy Name, a Name above all other names. Amen! Amen!
