“Confidence and Fear”
Rev. Tyler Dirks
How have you personally experienced Christ-centered confidence (as opposed to ‘foolish confidence’ [see Psalm 49:13])?
When was a time someone challenged you to boldly trust and obey God, and pursue something radical because of your confidence in Christ?
When was a time you were pressured into doing something difficult and good?
When was a time you unashamedly & audaciously asked people to give money to (or help with) something?
How have you seen fear & timidity erode your confidence in Christ? (see Matthew 14:30)
Have you ever had a friend offend you for your own good? (see Matthew 11:6 and Luke 7:23).
How have you personally experienced the REALITY of 1 John 4:18?
