My colleague, author Stan Guthrie, says something similar in his book “All That Jesus Asks.” Reflecting on Jesus’ command not to fear those who kill the body but to fear God instead, Stan writes, “Fear will come, no matter what. Fear is a fact of any thinking person’s existence. But it matters supremely what the object of our fear is. Jesus says that since we are going to fear anyway, it makes more sense to fear God, not men.”
The 368-page paperback of All That Jesus Asks has been discontinued by Baker Books and is becoming hard to find, but if you’d like a signed copy for $10 (list price is $20) plus postage, email me at guthsc[at]att.net. Thanks!
