What does it mean to fear The Lord? The Psalmist says that by fearing The Lord first, it’s the beginning of wisdom for us! A healthy fear of The Lord is nothing more than a reverent respect for who He is. It is not being scared that if you make a mistake He will destroy you! Let’s be honest, if your reading this now you know you’ve made a mistake in the last 24 hours. We are a people that lust after everything even when we have enough. We get angry. We say things we wish we hadn’t said. We make mistakes!
A healthy fear of The Lord is recognizing that even though we have made mistakes he still loves us! Yes He could wipe us of the face of the earth with a whisper, but that’s not how He operates.
Jesus Christ is the Holy One! He is the sacrifice The Lord sent for us so that we might find freedom from the chains that keep us bound to sin and condemnation!
When we acknowledge Jesus as Lord we are free! Romans 8:31-39 speaks more this!
