First Serve music by Jerry Mahn Worship music by the Kettering Advent Ringers, the church choir and Krystal Morris, soprano


“No Fear” First message in series: I. Today’s Tweet from God (Isaiah 41:10, NCV) So don't worry, because I am with you. Don't be afraid, because I am your God.

II. The Prevalence of Fear A. Media B. Family influence C. Genetic predisposition

III. The Passage on Fear vs. Faith (2 Timothy 1:5-7 NCV) I remember your true faith. That faith first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice, and I know you now have that same faith. This is why I remind you to keep using the gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. Now let it grow, as a small flame grows into a fire. God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but a spirit of power and love and self-control.

* The fear-based life is built on avoidance; the faith-based life is built on action.

IV. The Practice of a Fear-based Life (Avoidance) A. Procrastination B. Denial C. Indecision

V. The Practice of a Faith-based Life (Action) (2 Timothy 1:7, NCV) God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but a spirit of power and love and self-control. A. Power B. Love C. Self-discipline
