Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

December 7, 2010 (sacred awe)

sacred awe

“Fearing God has two aspects.
The first is reverence.
It is a sacred awe of God’s utter holiness.
It involves the kind of respect and veneration
that results in fear in the presence
of such absolute majesty.
The second aspect is fear of God’s displeasure.
Genuine faith acknowledges God’s right to chasten,
His right to punish, and His right to judge.”
- John MacArthur
