MORNINGTIME 2778
 
And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? (This starts off as a light duty question asking if you belong to The Lord God Almighty, what can anyone do to you that hasn't first gone through the Throne Room?) But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: (Now it gets a little heavier telling us that if we do suffer for being Obedient to the Lord, take it in stride and be content that the Lord has everything under control.) and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; (Now we get down to the heavy duty stuff. A word study of the word Terror is as bad as it sounds. And as bad as that is, we are still not to be afraid. This is not a hope or suggestion, this is a command, BE NOT AFRAID. Is there still any question as to what this means?) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: (And this verse finishes up by focusing our eyes and attention on what's really important. Right here, right now, with your eyes, heart, mind and soul totally focused on Christ, tell all those around you Who He Is and what He wants to do for them. Here there is no place for Fear as you Love Christ and Love your Lost and Deceived neighbors, trying one more time to tell them about Christ and His Offer of  Salvation, EVEN IF DEATH IS STARING YOU IN THE FACE. So what's the problem with death? It's just a doorway to Heaven, and all men are going to die sometime. Why not go when you're right in the middle of Serving Your Conquering King? ) 1 Peter 3:13-15. And one more time, let's re-read, "and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;". Tell me, at what point do your Trials, Troubles, Testings, and Tribulations become too frightful, too scary, too hard to handle, that the Lord hauls all the Christians out and lets the world go up in smoke? Just Share Christ, and, Be Blessed.
