I have never considered myself to be a fearful person but the testimony linked above began exposing that very thing. Over the past few years I have become more and more concerned about the “culture of fear” in our churches and organizations. This fear drives us to more control and less grace. It paralyzes our ministries and our lives.
Del Fehsenfeld Jr., founder of Life Action Ministries, gave this audio testimony to a group of pastors shortly before he died from a brain tumor at age 42. God was working in him deeply about the fear of man for the last seven years of his life and this became his most passionate closing message. That was over 20 years ago. It is a message that is probably needed more today than ever.
I know that this piece of audio is a bit long, but please listen—and then look into your own heart. If you want to download the audio you can do so from the Life Action website.
