You have seen several movies where the man saves the princess against all odds. His love for the damsel in distress carries him through the warlords and the demons. The serpents and sea creatures are unable to fight against the heart that beats for his damsel. He does not fear the evil army hoards and is willing to fall upon his sword to save his woman. He loves her and that is enough to keep him plowing forward.
How much do you love the Lord Jesus Christ? Are you willing to lay your life down like Paul, Stephen, John, Peter, and so many others for the cross? If fear consumes you. It is because you have not been perfected in love. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love (1 John 4:18). Did not God say that he would never leave you or forsake you? Is he a man that he should lie? Then make a difference. Shine your light before men and do not hide who you are in Christ. Do not be afraid for the Lord Jesus is your strength and will not allow you to be tempted above that which you are able, but will give you a way to escape. Trust him. We are left here by the request of the Master. Jesus said, “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:15-17).
