Men, where is your courage? Not rude, overbearing actions but real courage. Courage to do the right thing regardless of the cost. Courage to read God’s word and absorb it, to act on it.
What fear had gripped you so strongly as to have haulted your movement in the right direction? That kind of fear is not from God.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.
