October 13

“Who are you that you should be afraid of a man who will die, and of the son of a man who will be made like grass? And you forget the Lord your Maker, Who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth” (Isa 51:12-13).

Peter denied the Lord, not for love of money, but fear of men. His answer? “Do not be afraid of their threats…But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts” (1 Pet 3:14-15). Give Jesus your fears!
