Answer: A worshiper created to know & glorify God
How Paul counseled fearful Timothy? (2 Timothy 1:7)
We need to grasp God’s greatness.
Fear comes from grasping the wrong greatness.
God’s greatness = His power. (Find pictures of God’s power, such as: Psalm 34:7, Matthew 6:25-34.)
God’s greatness = His love. (Find pictures of God’s love.)
Divine Perspective on Change: 2 Corinthians 3:18
We need practical, transformation meditation on God.
How? Memorize Scripture. Worship > Petition > Confession
What? Focus on God’s power & love. Find pictures of God’s love & power in scripture.
