New Testament

Ephesians 06:05

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.

Ephesians 6:5 (TNIV)

Be sincere and cheerful in your work. Remember that regardless of who you are working for, you are really working for the Lord. Serve Him with all respect and ability, for a reward awaits you.

Ephesians 03:11-12

That was God’s plan from the beginning. He has worked it out through Christ Jesus our Lord. Through him and through faith in him we can approach God. We can come to him freely. We can come without fear.

Ephesians 3:11-12 (NIrV)

We have no obstacles to God because of our faith in Christ. We can go to Him in confidence and not be afraid.

2 Corinthians 07:13-16

And we were greatly encouraged. Although we were encouraged, we felt even better when we saw how happy Titus was, because you had shown that he had nothing to worry about. We had told him how much we thought of you, and you did not disappoint us. Just as we have always told you the truth, so everything we told him about you has also proved to be true. Titus loves all of you very much, especially when he remembers how you obeyed him and how you trembled with fear when you welcomed him. It makes me really glad to know that I can depend on you.

2 Corinthians 7:13-16 (CEV)

Repentance, dependence and obedience result in confidence that eliminates fear and anxiety.

2 Corinthians 05:10-11

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God, and I hope it is known also to your conscience.

2 Corinthians 5:10-11 (ESV)

You know that one day everyone will stand in judgment, so in worship to God be an encouragement to others so that they will be ready to face God.

2 Corinthians 04:16

Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.

2 Corinthians 4:16 (AMP)

If adversity and hardship contribute to the renewal of our soul then we will be glad and not afraid. Be continually renewed each day through His word.

2 Corinthians 04:01-02

THEREFORE, SINCE we do hold and engage in this ministry by the mercy of God [granting us favor, benefits, opportunities, and especially salvation], we do not get discouraged (spiritless and despondent with fear) or become faint with weariness and exhaustion. We have renounced disgraceful ways (secret thoughts, feelings, desires and underhandedness, the methods and arts that men hide through shame); we refuse to deal craftily (to practice trickery and cunning) or to adulterate or handle dishonestly the Word of God, but we state the truth openly (clearly and candidly). And so we commend ourselves in the sight and presence of God to every man’s conscience.

2 Corinthians 4:1-2 (AMP)

Through Gods grace and mercy He counts us as faithful. This same grace and mercy allows us to serve Him honestly and in all sincerity, thereby bringing Him glory.

1 Corinthians 07:32-35

I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband. I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:32-35 (ESV)

Seek wisdom regarding your earthly responsibilities, be careful not to worry or be overly consumed with things of the world. Fewer interests in the world will allow you to place more of your attention on pleasing and worshiping God.

Romans 13:03-05

For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.

Romans 13:3-5 (NLT)

God places those he wants in positions of government to accomplish His greater purpose. Only those that do wrong need to fear punishment. In the same way we are subject to following God’s authority established for His kingdom, so through obedience, we worship Him.

Romans 11:19-21

You will say then, Branches were broken (pruned) off so that I might be grafted in! That is true. But they were broken (pruned) off because of their unbelief (their lack of real faith), and you are established through faith [because you do believe]. So do not become proud and conceited, but rather stand in awe and be reverently afraid. For if God did not spare the natural branches [because of unbelief], neither will He spare you [if you are guilty of the same offense].

Romans 11:19-21 (AMP)

We are not saved by anything we have done, only because of our belief and because of God’s grace are we grafted into His covenant. Do not count on your own strength but give thanks and worship the Lord always for fear of being cut off as unbelievers are.

Romans 10:20

Isaiah was fearless enough to tell that the Lord had said, “I was found by people who were not looking for me. I appeared to the ones who were not asking about me.”

Romans 10:20 (CEV)

We give thanks to God for choosing us in love and can be bold and fearless when speaking His truth. Do not be afraid of upsetting men.
