The Lord continues to give us encouragement for our witness as a church. In this text, Jesus speaks against ungodly fear and calls us to exercise godly fear. We all struggle with the fear of man. Jesus encourages us to fear God and not men. This godly fear drives out ungodly fear. It is this godly fear that will give us strength to face the trials that are before us.
In this text, Jesus calls us to:
1. Live in the light of his coming with godly fear.
2. Trusting in his sovereign care for us.
3. Confessing him before men.
