A Bible series on the subject of fear!
Fear is widely addressed in the Scriptures. There are many kinds of fear which can be spoken about. We should identify what fears are an enemy of faith and what kind of fear is an ally to our souls. Near the end of the series we also look at the Fear of God.
Texts that are heavily used are: Mark 4:35-41; Matthew 8:18-27; 14:22-33; 6:30-34;25:14-30; Luke 19:11-23; Genesis 3:8-10; Acts 8:18-24; 1 John 1:8-10; James 5:16; John 2:28; Proverbs 29:25; Hebrews 2:14-16; Psalm 10; 128; Proverbs 1:7; 3:7; 14:26, 27; 25:12; Exodus 20:20; Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14; Luke 12:5 and several others.
It is a phrase which is often stated but one that is unlikely explained. You must "call on the name of the Lord" to be saved. But what does it mean? How do we call on the name of the Lord today?
This command was also unclear to many of the Jews in the first century. The apostle Peter was preaching the gospel to thousands on the day of Pentecost wherein he quoted from the prophet Joel, "And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved" (Acts 2:21).
After he testified against their deeds and after he gave irrefutable proof that Jesus was the Christ, the people were pierced to the heart and asked a very important question, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37). If they knew "how to call on the name of the Lord, they would not have asked, "what shall we do?"
