Fear is a Liar

Fear is a Liar!  The fruits of fear are:  anxiety, condemnation, impatience, anger, angst, bitterness and the list goes on.  This is the fearful life the Jews are living as we catch up with them in Numbers 21.  It’s also a similar fear that Nicodemus has in John 3. To both, God has a very…
