RADIO PROGRAM NO. 371 - Just What Is Developing?

[The speaker is Philip Metcalf. The questioner is Robert McKinnon.]

Questioner: Many people are fearful about the possibility that they may develop a serious disease. They have periodic checkups and take care of themselves, but their fears persist.
Speaker: There are different levels of fear. I have a friend, for example, whose frequent checkups indicate that he is in perfect health, but he is miserable and fearful because he thinks some disease may be developing.

But no one has to live with fear. Countless people have experienced that release which the Scriptures promise. In his healing ministry Christ Jesus not only said (Luke 8:50), "Fear not," but he provided the basis for letting go of fear. He healed serious eases completely. You may remember that when he was talking to his disciples, he used the illustration of the sparrow. While pointing out the fact that even a sparrow is precious in God's sight, he said (Matt. 10:31), "Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."
