Not fear—but power, love, and a sound mind

The Holy Bible provides a tremendous reservoir of hope and comfort. Its pages are filled with promise for finding regeneration, renewal, and healing. And this message of healing is equally true for all, including those who are struggling with emotional turmoil, who are afraid, or who have come to feel that their lives and thoughts no longer know any peace.

In following the example of Christ Jesus, the Apostle Paul brought the message of God's love and grace to countless people across the Roman Empire of his day. From the streets and marketplaces in the villages of Judea to the imperial city of Rome itself, Paul preached salvation—the transforming power of Christ. And people were healed.

Paul's letters to the early Christians are left to us, for our own guidance today, in the New Testament. When Paul was writing, those were times of great opportunity for the young Church but also great challenge. There were many, with both political and ecclesiastical influence, who harshly persecuted Jesus' followers. In the face of this opposition, Paul's letters offered needed instruction, encouragement, and a bond of unity to fledgling congregations of Christians in the far-flung regions along the Mediterranean.
