Fear and the fighter pilot

I was talking with a retired US Navy Pilot with a second career as a church leader. A fighter pilot is taught about the importance of fear. As you take off from the aircraft carrier, adrenaline is rushing, your hearing becomes acute, and your mind is  able to process data quickly. Fear makes your hyper aware and is a natural survival method. The pilot went on to say that as one faces  fear you find hidden benefits.   Face your fear today and invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
