Fear and Trembling

Today I was working on a sermon for Philippians 2:12-13.

That’s right, 2 verses.  They’re pretty weighty verses.

In this passage Paul says, “work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”

Got me thinking about fear.  What are you afraid of?

I used to be terrified of water.  I used to get a lot of ear infections which was caused by fluid in my ears.  I didn’t like pain, and pain came from water.  I hated water.  Now I will swim, but I’m still not keen on jumping into water when I can’t see the bottom, or going under water.

But what are you afraid of and why?

One thought on “Fear and Trembling

  1. Afraid of;
    Being alone
    Loosing a family member
    Sleeping when you’re gone.

    To heavy?

    I’m also afraid of spiders. And I’ve instilled a pretty good fear of spiders into my daughter too!
