Fear can bring out the worst in people, and rob us of joy, but people of faith can say with Isaiah, “Surely it is God who saves me; I will trust and not be afraid.”
Dr. Eben Alexander’s story of his near-death experience prompts the claim that death is not the last word, and you are loved and have nothing to fear—a message consistent with the gospel for anyone who loves God.
God knows all about the details of our lives, and God cares for us, so we don't need to be afraid.
God is with us in all things, and we find out who we are when we come to know who God is.
God's grace will see us through all adversity.
