Why do we fear?

Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.
— Hebrews 2:14-15

 

Every bit of fear you face is drawn out of the fear of death. When a person fears a sickness or disease it's because they're afraid to die. When a person steals or sells drugs, their reason for doing it is usually to preserve their life. The biggest fear a heroin addict has, is the fear of death. Almost every reason behind fear stems from the fear of dying. 

If you accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life, you have access to live a fear free life. Jesus, the Son of God, came down to earth and put on flesh and blood so that He could die! He was sent for one purpose and it was to DIE! In that death, however, He took back the keys of hell, death, and grave from Satan (Rev. 1:18). Three days later He rose back to life! WHY? Because death lost its power. 

“Death is swallowed up in victory.

O death, where is your victory?

O death, where is your sting?”

For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

-1 Cor. 15:55-57

The Bible says in James 1:15 "These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death." Jesus gave you the power to never sin a day in your life and through that power, the death sentence over your life is broken! 

The next time fear comes knocking on your door, remind it of what Jesus did. The greatest victory ever afforded to the believer was the victory over death! So, FEAR NOT. That's a command!
