Lesson 71: Fear of Man and the Triune God, Part I (Luke 12:4-12)Related Media
(Part I) There are all kinds of things in this world that we could choose to be afraid of, but you don’t need to watch a scary movie or walk down a dark alley to have your fears informed. Perhaps the most pervasive fear, the fear of man, in all the various ways it manifests itself, seems to be hardwired into each person. Jesus, however, regularly helped to right the fears of His disciples, pointing them toward a reverent fear of God—a fear that was really rooted in their trust in Him to care for them throughout all of life’s circumstances. And that is the central message of this two-part message from Pastor Daniel: Fear of man can only exist where fear of God is weak. Having a right understanding then of the Triune God who is spoken of as all three persons in this text will help us to 1) Fear God the Father, 2) Confess Christ, and 3) Submit to the Holy Spirit.
