Fear can be something that can control our lives. Fear can keep us from the joys that God has for us. One of the greatest joys of all is the ability to tell another person about our faith in Christ. Yet, fear may have kept us from it. Do you know what fear stands for? False Expectations Appearing Real! Think about it for a moment. What is the worst thing that could possibly happen when we share our faith? Does fear paralyze you from telling others about Christ? We can overcome our fears of telling others about Jesus.
Peter and John were threatened by very powerful men. They could have had them killed immediately for speaking about Jesus. However, they not only overcame their fear they also spoke boldly about their faith! How did they do it? Were they special? No. They knew some things that can help us this morning to overcome our fear of telling others about Jesus.
