I think there are at least two reasons why becoming a Christian is scary.
In spite of all that God had given them, Adam and Eve wanted more. They believed the lie that they could become their own gods (i.e. be in charge) if they just disobeyed the Creator.
Many of you probably don’t read the Bible regularly because you aren’t convinced of the benefits. When you do try to read it, it feels like digging a trench for no apparent reason.
The presence of God is terrifying because He is pure and holy, and because He hates everything that is not pure and holy. That should scare us because none of us are as good as God.

We tend to value what God can give us more than we value a closeness with Him, the One who made us and also died to rescue us from our sin.
The Bible is referring to a type of waiting that is very different from that long wait in the Walmart checkout line.
Discouragement usually sets in when people or circumstances don’t meet our expectations. Is there anything that can we do about it?
