Fear of the Unknown

Inline image 1

You shall have no other gods. What does this mean? We should fear, love and trust in God above all things.

Paul preached about the unknown god in Acts 17 using it as an opening to express the message of the Gospel. I’m not taking issue with that but instead mashing up two concepts into one. Thank you Paul, that was an excellent use of props to open up minds. I’d like to talk about when we take the unknown and we make it a god.

When we fear the unknown we make it a god. Not knowing should not be a place of fear for a Christian since knowing is not all it’s cracked up to be. Knowing may lure you into a sense of control when really you have none. Fearing the unknown only makes it stronger, but having confidence in knowing only takes your eyes of the true focus on God. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? None of us. We should fear, love and trust in God above all things, that’s where fear should be located; in a God who loves us, the right place to leave our fear behind.

As for tomorrow, D.V.
