Lately, I’ve really enjoyed reading Mike Brown’s blog, Ocular Fusion. Mike is father to three of our youth group guys, a fellow baseball enthusiast and something of a church history buff. If you enjoy witty, intelligent commentary, check out Ocular Fusion. A little politics, a little theology, a little sports talk (he’s a fellow Card fan)…it’s all solid stuff worthy of a read.
I was reading Isaiah 43 today and I was struck at how many times in Scripture God implores us not to be afraid. The underlying message is that we need not fear any foe or opponent, for the God-with-us is mighty to deliver, strong to save. This is the heart of Romans 8:31. With God on my side, whom shall I fear?
