“The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?”

– Psalm 27:11

His name is the name that gives us courage. If anything can give you courage, let it be the bravest human being that has ever lived – Jesus Christ. God in the flesh. Jesus still was human – He struggled with all of the temptations that we still have – I believe, including fear. Why do I believe that? Well, just look at the prayer in Gethsemane. However, He acted in spite of those feelings of fear and angst. Jesus is the epitome of what it means to be courageous. To live every moment bravely against the thing you’re afraid of for the sake of another – for the good. 


Thank you, God, for such an example of courage through Jesus. Help us to be more like Him.

  1. I agree with the sentiment of this post. We don’t place enough emphasis on this very point. If he wasn’t truly man, with all the fears etc., then how solid was his sacrifice. The sacrifice is more powerful if viewed through the idea that at any stage, he could have said, enough is enough.
