Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #177 

TEXT: Matthew 10:29-36 

Last week, we talked about the issue of fear in the life of the believer. Jesus commanded His disciples not to fear man and only to fear God. Today, as we continue our series on facing conflict as a Christian, we are going to look at three reasons why we should not fear what man can do to us. 

1. We should not fear because God cares for us. Jesus says to his disciples, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." 

2. We should not fear because God has a test for us. Jesus tells His disciples, "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household." 

3. We should not fear because God has a reward for us. Jesus tells His disciples, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven." 

If you want to receive rewards from Jesus Christ, we must remember that God cares for us so that we will not falter in moments of conflict. We should also see each moment of conflict in our lives as a test from God. Will we bow and submit to pressure from the world and the devil, or will we stand up for Christ and the Gospel?
