Fear Not (Matthew 1:18-20)Bro. Scott Pauley, December 17, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Fear not is found many times throughout the Bible. But, interestingly enough, it is found no fewer than 4 times in the Christmas story. Why is that?
This morning special guest preacher, Bro. Scott Pauley, shows us the Fear Nots of the Christmas story and what they really meant. Joseph, Mary, Zacharias, and the Shepherds were all told Fear Not. But the meanings behind those two words were different for each of them.
As our church enters into a season of the unknown, we are reminded to Fear Not when facing difficulties, when God is doing the unexpected, when God is directing or disrupting your life.

18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. (KJV)
