"Fear Not! There is Peace” (Audio Teaching)
Scripture: Matthew 1:21; Luke 2:14
When God started speaking after 400 years of silence He revealed two amazing things. First, the savior would save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21) and there would be peace toward humanity on behalf of God (Luke 2:14). In fact, the heavens break open in joyous celebration to announce this amazing news. Why is the response fear? Why is our response to God still fear? When God starts shining His light in us, our tendency is to be afraid because we fear judgment; however, if we understand the message of forgiveness and peace as announce by the angles when the Savior was born into the world we have no reason to fear because we’ll understand there is peace toward us on behalf of God.
