Christians challenged not to be afraid

MEMBERS of the Christian Mission Fellowship International (CMFI) church in Macuata were yesterday challenged not to be afraid but to stand up for God's calling in their lives.

The message was conveyed by the church president, Reverend Suliasi Kurulo, during their combined service at the Naiyaca church.

"When you hear or study the Bible, the word fear not or do not be afraid is mentioned 366 times and when you have fear in your life, it will control your mind," he said.

"Fear will destroy your vision of who you are in Christ. One weapon that the devil uses a lot is the spirit of fear.

"God said for us to rebuke the spirit of fear and not to be afraid.

"Be courageous because a lot of people's destiny is connected to yours.

"A lot of people are watching you and if you are a weak leader, so will be the followers," Mr Kurulo said.

He told the church members that 2014 was the year of harvest.

"There are three things God will do this year and that is the harvesting of new people into the church, harvest of resources and miracle.

"Don't allow fear to limit your faith in God and don't let it stop you from doing what God wants you to do.

"You must be strong for the sake of the people so you can become a useful person and God's blessing will be yours," Mr Kurulo said.
