Fear is a kind of a super power and like any super power it can be used for good or for evil. The fear response allows your body to perform at superhuman capacities. It allows you to run for a bus that you see in the distance that you are afraid of missing. Alot of the performance enhancing drugs actually mimic the effects of the fear response. When people take stimulants it mirrors what adrenaline does. In normal life we could learn to allow fear to increase our performance and allow it to come back to base level. The fear response is so fantastic that is goes through several levels of response we tend to label as panic, but actually is a fairly sophisticated gradated response to varying levels of threat. The bible says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. I wonder how this links together in your life? Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
