Fear of Man

Have you ever noticed a change in your behavior when you are around certain people? Do you ever find yourself paralyzed by what someone might think about you? What if all of your striving and competitive spirit came from a heart of fear?


In this message, Pastor Carlos unpacks Galatians 1 and 2 to help us understand and address the fear of man. As Ed Welch has written, "Anything that erodes the fear of God will intensify the fear of man." When our fear makes people big, we make compromises. We too easily forget who God is, and who we are in His eyes. Pastor Carlos reminds us that culture is in the full-time spiritual formation business. The more we mature in Christ, the more we grow in our awe and reverence of God. And this allows us to need people less so we can love them more.
