Matthew 10:28 – Stop being afraid of those who kill the body but can’t kill the soul. Instead, be afraid of the one who can destroy both body and soul in hell.
This verse from the Holy Bible instills in us the courage and strength we need to walk through this life as good Christians, and sheds light on an often-ignored truth. On occasion we deny our eternal Lord through our fear of mere mortals, people whose existence on earth is temporary. However the Bible clearly advises us only to fear the destruction of our soul, and not that of our body by other humans.
Consequently we should only fear our Lord and creator who has the power to banish both body and soul to everlasting destruction in hell. Our fear acts as the deterrent that prevents us committing any evil deeds. Fearing our Lord is essentially the beginning of true wisdom. Thus be faithful to Christ until death, fearing no one other than the Lord as only He can give you the crown of eternal life. Amen
