The Fear of God – It seems like the modern day church has lost the sense of it. It seems missing from our worship. What is the fear of God? Why fear God? And how do we cultivate this fear of God?
People can fear many things. But the fear of God is a good and healthy fear. It is a deep respect and reverential trust. It is wise and rightful. We fear God for His holiness, in honour of Him, and as we sense His great glory and majesty. Like the holy creatures around His throne we want to adore Him.
The fear of God brings blessing. He promises His deliverance and mercy to them that fear Him. Having a sense of the fear of God brings His power into our lives, and guides us to live holy. We learn the fear of God as we seek His Word and fellowship. As we grow in devotion and learn to praise It brings a new sense of who God is. We re-assess our priorities, and hear His call.
In our world we see there is no fear of God before their eyes. Yet for the saved the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. The most essential thing in a man’s life.
