When I ask what characteristics a Christian should embody, most people list kindness, generosity, patience, honesty, and other qualities along that line. But “courage” is often overlooked. God will ask you to step outside of your comfort zone, but don’t be afraid. The Lord’s power can conquer anything (or anyone) you fear.
Joshua 1:9 states:
“I’ve commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t ever be afraid or discouraged! I am the Lord your God, and I will be there to help you wherever you go” (Contemporary English Version).
