  • Don’t fly from faith when anxious; fight for faith

    Anxiety is a dark companion. The Apostle Paul, writing to Roman Christians about his struggles in living the Christian life says, “When I want to do right, evil lies close at hand” (Romans 7:21). While this refers specifically to the sin nature that is still present in every child of God, one common manifestation of this is anxiety and worry. For most people anxiety is close at hand, lurking in the shadows. It is easily provoked, and with much difficulty is it dealt with.
