Fear of Man

A big danger to youth these days, is the fear of man...

~Prov. 29:25"The fear of man brings a snare."
~Matt. 10:28(words of our Lord)"Fear not them that can kill the body; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both body and soul, in hell."
~Prov. 16:7"When a man's ways please the Lord, even his enemies become at peace with him"

We need to try to please the Lord and man, if (if, if, if ,if) they are in the same catagory, but if not, we need to go against the flow, and please our God. Never be ashamed, of letting people see that you want to go to heaven. Do not think that it is a disgrace to show yourself a servant of God. Never be afraid of doing what is right. Can man save your soul?-No. Will man be our judge on the last day?-No. Can man give you a concience in life, a good hope in death, a good answer in the day of resurrection?-No! No! No! No!

Most people are like sheep, they follow a leader. "Like dead fish, they go with the stream and the tide, what others think is right; they think is right." -J.C. Ryle
On an interveiw with John MacAurther a man asked,"Aren't you afraid to speak the gospel?" MacAurther replied, " No, I'm afraid not to."
"I fear the Lord, and therefore I have none else to fear" -Colonel Gardiner

Now, is the answer to stop fearing man? No. The answer is to fear the Lord more.

Something I need to work on.
