“Fear not, little flock”


“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
(Luke 12:32 ESV)

John Piper on Luke 12:

This whole chapter of Luke (ch. 12) is strewn with words from Jesus about not being afraid. And in every case the contentment and peace and fearlessness and courage that he wants us to have is not owing to the human resources at our disposal (like money or ability or possessions or intellect or looks or status or connections). In every case the peace and courage and fearlessness is owing to the fact that God will be there for us even when human resources are small or fail entirely.
