OVERCOMING FEAR

"Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" (Luke 12:32). These comforting words addressed by Christ Jesus to his disciples indicate his tender regard for his flock. The Master was ever guiding his disciples in the straight and narrow way, turning their thoughts from self and protecting their growing understanding of the truth which he said would make them free.

Although Christ Jesus was speaking to his own disciples, his wise and reassuring counsel is for us all. Jesus did not say, "It will be your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." He used the present tense, for he knew that salvation from the discords which beset human experience is not something to be attained in the future but that this salvation is a present possibility.
