And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.—Matthew 10:28
While Jesus understands our fears, he also helps us to know real fear. There are those things that kill, and there are those people that kill. But these things and people merely attack the body, and yes, to some degree, we fear them. Yet this is not true terrifying fear. The great fear is to fear the one who has the power to destroy body and soul. So fear him now so you won't fear him later, and watch as human fear turns toward a reverent fear of the One who saves both body and soul.
DO THIS: Fear God and nothing else. Train yourselves to fear the right things and right One.
PRAY THIS: God, I trust in you with holy and reverent fear.
