Lent 2024: No Fear, Just Faith by Sis. Tori Collins


“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 hell.”

Matthew 10:28 


March 22, 2024

No Fear, Just Faith

As I approach this Lenten season on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, I reflect on my journey and God’s purpose for me. I am greatly blessed. I have lived a life that is the result of a loving and forgiving God. 

When Jesus offered the disciples’ authority and commanded them to go and minister, He said: “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 hell.” Basically, don’t fear man, fear God. The reality is if we have already died with Christ and are focused on eternity; nothing man can do to us matters. 

We are still fighting as we fervently pray, strategically serve, and diligently work on injustices that exclude people created in the image of God. My purpose is to assist with this fight, to be an advocate and activist for others through Christ. 

We serve a God who is fair and just. The world is not fair, but we must be fearless! It is not easy but with God, all things are possible. May we not fear what can happen to us because we know Jesus conquered death and holds our lives in his hands.

PrayerAbba God, thank you for your strength that we receive through the life of Jesus. Give us divine boldness to say something when we see injustices in our communities. Allow us to be fearless in our daily walk and live for others as You have our soul in Your hands! Amen.


Lent 2024

We invite you to join us in reflection, meditation and prayer for a season of renewal, repentance and rejoicing from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.

Each day is a reflection representing the thoughts and aspirations of the members and friends of Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church expressing what the season of Lent means to them.  Their wide range of perspectives describe how this time of renewal, repentance and rejoicing has been and will be used to focus on Jesus’ life, crucifixion and resurrection.

Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline.
