Fear is an emotion that most of us try to avoid. But if you’ve ever stood before an authority figure that would determine your fate, or on the top of a skyscraper, or at the edge of a vast canyon, then you’ve experienced healthy fear. The kind that is intertwined with amazement, awe, and reverence. The Christmas story showcases and beautifully reframes fear and highlights why we celebrate a God that is just, merciful, and awe-inspiring. In this message, you will learn more about the role fear played in Mary’s experience and be challenged to examine the many ways an all-powerful God has never stopped giving mercy to those who fear him.
