Why do Christians not have to live in fear?
Would others describe you as someone intentionally living out your faith in Jesus? What does that say about your walk with Jesus?
What do you feel God may be asking you to do that you find difficult? Why would it be worth the cost of what it might take? What steps can you take to be a part of God’s plans this week? Who can you invite to come alongside you?
When was a time you have had to step out of your comfort zone and take part in something challenging to you?
God, You have promised to be with me in times of trouble, times of hardship, and even times of persecution. I know that I can trust You. You are faithful to keep Your promises. You understand what it feels like to be persecuted, mocked, and to suffer for the sake of the gospel. Don’t let me idolize my comfort. Never let me put my comfort above You and Your mission.
Give me grace to cling only to You. Give me a clear mind and heart, so that when brothers and sisters around me endure trying times, I may provide encouragement, support, and love, through the grace and power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Lord, use me and my church to reach the unreached near and far, that people from every nation would know You.
Don’t let me live in fear and shame, Lord. You see me, love me, and have invited me into Your mission. You have given me all that I need to live for You, so please lead me by Your Spirit. Amen.
