Live by faith
We look at the bible stories with the benefit of hindsight. We know the outcome of the story, so we can fail to appreciate the emotional aspects involved in the story itself. With Moses at the burning bush we can fail to feel the terror, with Gideon in the barn we can fail to sense the fear. The story of Esther having to face her husband the king in terror at the possibility of death. Fear is part of these stories and part of our own. These bible characters learnt to live by faith in God when they were afraid, and that is why they are examples of our faith. Face your fear today and invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
