The Fear of God or of Man

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Do you ever fear what others might think of you? Does it impact your decisions or what you talk about? You know, Hebrews 13:6 says, “We can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?’” Jesus told us Himself before He ascended into heaven that He will be with us always, even to the end of the age. And we can take Him at His Word. There is no competition— the fear of what others may say or do to us should pale in comparison to the reverential fear and awe that we have for our Savior and Lord. Let our anthem be the same as Paul’s: to live is Christ; to die is gain. You know, there’s too little time that we have here on this earth not to share the Gospel with others! So the question is: will we? Or will we give in to our fears? For resources to help you in sharing your faith, visit our website at That’s
