We are preparing to be priests in the kingdom of God. We often can become fearful and distracted by this world in our lives. The Bible teaches us to "be not afraid". We examine the uses of this phrase in the Bible and how courage is necessary to develop the physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual aspects of our lives. Courage is based on understanding God's Agape love for us. This courage will help us to personally prepare ourselves so that we can serve in his kingdom.
