The world can be a frightening place. Sometimes, we let our fear get the best of us and paralyze us into inactivity. The answer to fear is courage. Courage doesn’t mean “not being afraid” but rather “the ability to act in spite of your fears.” The Bible is full of exhortation to choose courage. We do not need to surrender to fear but can choose courage not because we are enough to face the trials ahead, but because God is with us. This 5-week study looks at people in the Christmas Story who had reason for fear but who instead chose courage. Each of them was faced with something different to fear. By looking at how they handled it, we can learn to follow their examples and choose courage in the midst of the hard times in our lives that tempt us to fear and to give up.
