Our culture screams with fear.
We are constantly told that sure disaster is ahead, attended by pictures of disasters in faraway places.
We are warned to buy or not buy certain products and take certain actions or our future is probably doomed.
All this makes fear a dominant factor in this present day.
Unless we guard against it the fear that runs our culture will run our lives.
Even though we sing about trusting Jesus we may panic like those who have no great, living Savior.
The fear of the Lord is the only appropriate fear in a believer’s life. This is not a fear that terrorizes us, makes us cringe in the corner, or slump in despair.
Fear of the Lord is a deep trembling in the soul, often beyond words, that comes from seeing some measure of the Lord’s infinite power, holiness, and love.
It is being overwhelmed with His glory.
It is the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos falling down like a dead man when seeing Jesus in all His glory.
Let us fear the Lord and live boldly! Grace to you.
