You have likely heard the expression “fear of God”, “fear God”, or “fear of the Lord” which is commonly found in the Bible.
Perhaps you have wondered….
- Why should I fear God?
- If I am a Christian do I still need to fear God?
- Does it mean I live in constant fear and anxiety?
- What about the passages where God says to “fear not”? How can I fear Him and "fear not" at the same time?
- If God is a God of love like it says in 1 John, doesn’t this eliminate our need to fear Him?
- Is fearing God an Old Testament focus that was done away with in the New Testament?
- How does fearing God affect my daily life?
- What are the benefits of fearing God?
These are some common questions that people have about the fear of God that we are going to address in the sermon this Sunday (March 10). We are going to look at three reasons for why we should fear God. In doing so we’ll study the life of Abraham, Moses, Isaiah, and several passages from the Proverbs and New Testament.
Some main passages that we’ll look at include: Genesis 22:1-14, Exodus 3:1-6, Isaiah 6:1-7, Matthew 10:28, and Proverbs 1:7.
Join us as we study these amazing passages on why everyone needs to fear the Lord and what that looks like in our lives.
Praise the LORD!
How blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
Who greatly delights in His commandments.
- Psalm 112:1
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday and serving you in this way. - Kevin Laser
