It is Jesus who encourages us to overcome our ‘fear’ of giving witness to all that he stands for. Why should we fear? Even the cheapest life in the market - ‘two sparrows for a penny’, is in the careful watch of our heavenly Father. “Every hair of our heads is numbered’, he tells us. When he comes to judge the world in the end, he will ‘declare himself for us in the presence of his Father.’ So,do not be afraid of the threats of the present world; make sure to stand up for righteousness.
