“and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon. Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.”
So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
And 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 Gehenna.
~ Matthew 10:28
“Therefore do not be afraid of them. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.
So again in these days I intend to favor Jerusalem and the house of Judah; do not fear!
This is the commitment I made to you
when you came out of Egypt.
My spirit remains in your midst;
do not fear!
