Combatting Fear: A Responsive Reading for Community

Share This:

Fear is an unwelcome companion that plagues mankind.

Fear of failure, fear of others, fear of the future…an endless list. When we come together as a unified group and declare the truths of God, we combat this spirit of fear and welcome the Prince of Peace. Below is a responsive reading for you to utilize in your family, small group, or church community. And this is just a starting point. We encourage you to add your own declarations of Truth as courage enters your heart.

1 Thessalonians 5:11  “Therefore encourage one another and build up one another,  just as you also are doing.”
