Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” (I Peter 3:13-14 NIV).
The greatest fear for true Christians should not be that others will hurt us for doing what is right, but that we ourselves might go with the crowd and do wrong. If we really have faith in God we will not be afraid when other people threaten us. Jesus said:
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28 NIV).
