Matthew: “It is enough for the student to be like his teacher…” Jesus was fearless in bringing the gospel to the lost – that is the example to emulate. He then tells us not to fear what man can do but rather to fear Him, Who, when He has killed the body can destroy both body and soul in hell. Unfortunately, we don’t hear too much of death and damnation, I think, because there is no audience for that kind of truth.
New Testament: Ephesians 2:1-10
Old Testament: Ezekiel 3:16-27
