Mail Call: Fear of God

A reader writes:

A brief meditation of what it means to fear God from my prayer this morning, which I will share with you since you recently posted on God's sovereignty: To fear God is to do more than just respect Him, but it is also not to literally be afraid of Him (as Adam was as he tried to hide from Him). To fear God is to know that the God who loves me and redeemed me is the very same God who parted the Red Sea to redeem the Israelites, the very same God who sent Jonah to Nineveh in order to accomplish their salvation; that nothing, not our enemies, nor even our disobedience, can stand against Him and the saving strength of His right hand. Fearing God is to respect, love, trust, and obey Him.

In Christ,
