Courage Instead of Fear

Main Point: Courageously follow Jesus, even in fearful circumstances.

Because we live in the natural world, we might sometimes struggle to believe the supernatural truth about Jesus. When He was on the earth, Jesus performed wondrous signs to help people overcome their struggles to believe, including calling Peter to walk on water and rescuing him in his doubt. Today, Jesus has not changed and has the same power. Therefore, we can follow Jesus knowing He will ultimately rescue us.

“Immediately Jesus spoke to them, ‘Have courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.’”

Matthew 14:27
