    Bruce,John 14:26.Be at peace.V.27"Let not your heart be troubled,neither let it be afraid." Be courageous. Luke 12:4-5 Jesus warns us to Fear the Lord with terror,because he has power to cast us into the lake of fire that you preach.Could the "fearful" be someone that does not have the courage to tell others about Christ?Or have Christ like courage during times of testing;trials,temptations.?

    We are great sinners, but He is a greater savior.
    Far too many parents are more interested in their kids making the team, than in making the Kingdom of God.
