Have No Fear
26Â â€œSo have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27Â What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. 28Â And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.[g] 29Â Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?[h] And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30Â But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31Â Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. 32Â So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, 33Â but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:26-33

About Season Of Light
I am writing a devotional series called â€œSeason of Lightâ€ (#SeasonOfLife) during the beginning of 2016, focusing on the 40 day season of Epiphany (from January 6 â€“ February 10). Weâ€™ll explore the major biblical themes ofÂ the beginning of Jesus ministry, and Iâ€™ll comment as the Holy Spirit inspires. This is for the purpose of growing in our relationship with the Lord. My desire â€“ my hope and prayer for you â€“ is that yourÂ heart may expand and your spirit grow brighter as we seek to be filled with the knowledge and presence of God. So, I invite you to join me on the â€œSeason of Lightâ€ journey!
Often Iâ€™ll be inspired by a scripture from the Daily Audio Bible readings and use that as a writing prompt. Hereâ€™s theÂ DAB readings for January 15:Â Genesis 31:17-32:12; Matthew 10:24-11:6; Psalms 13:1-6; Proverbs 3:16-18
Our church is also on a reading plan of four chapters per day, starting in the New Testament. Today is Matthew 21-24.
