Fear of Man

Scripture Notes Header

Fear of man is a snare.  (Proverbs 29:25)

The Gospel frees us from the insecurity of needing other people’s opinions to validate our worth.  It frees us, therefore, from needing to manipulate the perceptions and impressions of everyone around us.

This means that when we receive the truth of the Gospel and embrace who God says we are in Christ, we no longer have to use people for their accolades.

Instead, we can love them authentically and serve them for their benefit… rather than using them for ours.

–Pastor Phillip

What We Are

What are you, really?

When iniquities prevail against me, you atone for our transgressions.
Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, the holiness of your temple! -Psalm 65:3-4

Because of the atoning work of Christ, now we, as those who trust and follow Him, are the temple of the living God.

Let us be satisfied, pleased and content with who we are in Christ, for because of Him we who were wicked are now filled with goodness. We who were evil are now holy.

In Christ, let us love who He has made us to be, and live like who and what we are.
