Romans 8: 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
• Would it be accurate to say that most of us have experienced fear at some point in life?
• Would it be accurate to say that most of us have experienced seasons of life where fear dominated us?
o I mean anxiety-producing, sleep depriving, soul-crushing, reality-altering fear.
o The only way to eliminate fear is to live in faith.
o This is not a state of being that we arrive at and stay at.
 We must be sober and vigilant
 We must stand
 We must choose, actively, to look unto Jesus the author and finisher of faith.

• DO not surrender your sovereign will to FEAR
o Fear is brought to the children of God to try to distract them from reality and to try to render them useless in the service of God
o Fear distorts reality
o Fear robs you of your freedom
o Fear steals your life-force
o Fear makes you sleep-deprived
o Fear causes you to make poor, near-sighted choices
o Fear prompts you to do mind-numbing activities and perhaps use mind-altering substances
o Ultimately, fear is sin, and sin brings death.
