Fearless- Imagine Your Life Without Fear by Max Lucado published by Thomas Nelson 2009
- Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reason for fear. Whether they are talking about layoffs at work, terrorism, or the latest health concern it seems FEAR is the plague of our day. Fear herds us into a prison and slams the door. Imagine your life, wholly untouched by angst. What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your hear and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, or doubt, what would remain? Envision the day when you can rust more and fear less.
- This is a 6 session DVD study. Lesson 1) Why Are We Afraid? This lesson will inspire us to live in awe of Christ.; Lesson 2) Fear of Not Mattering- This lesson will help you to Stop striving! You MATTER to God; Lesson 3) Fear of Disappointing God- This lesson will remind you, we have all failed, you are not alone; Lesson 4) Fear of Life's Final Moments- This lesson reminds us that because of Christ we can face our next life with peace; Lesson 5) Fear of Global Calamity- In this lesson we are reminded that the Bible warns us of the dangerous environment we live in, so there is no point pretending. Jesus tells us "not to be alarmed" or in modern day version "don't freak out"; Lesson 6) Fear of God Getting Our of My Box - In this lesson we are encouraged to see God's radiance.
- Included in the Leaders guide is the reading schedule for the book Fearless- Lesson 1- Chapter 1; Lesson 2 - Chapter 2; Lesson 3- Chapter 3; Lesson 4- Chapter 10; Lesson 5- Chapter 13; Lesson 6- Chapter 14. The leaders guide also gives great discussion tips.
- The small group discussion guide has wonderful introspective questions. Encourage people to at least read through it before the meeting, this will provide for great discussion. Sometimes just hearing that others fear the same thing will break the hold it may have on ones' heart. Isolation and letting our imagination run is truly one of the devils great tactics. Journey through this study to the day when you can trust more and fear less.
