Gospel of Matthew – Fear of Man

Our message is again from the Gospel of Matthew, it is entitled “Fear of Man” and taken from Matthew 10:26-33. We will examine Jesus’ command to not fear those who oppose the gospel, regardless of their ferocity and power. Jesus gives us three reasons to encourage us to fearlessness. The outline will look like this:

  • Opposition Is Normal
    • Three Reasons to Fear Not:
    • The Good News Will Triumph
    • The Soul is More than the Body
  • God’s Sovereignty Cares for Us
  • Priorities: It is not Optional
  • How to Know if you Fear Man & What to Do About It

Public reading: Psalm 147; Benediction: 2 Peter 1:2-3

Matthew 10:26-33

26 “So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. 32 So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, 33 but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven. (ESV)

2 Peter 1:2-3

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, (ESV)
