  The fear of the LORD

 

The fear of the LORD

Is the beginning of wisdom;

It is a deep-seated reverence for

HIS HOLY RIGHTEOUSNESS, HIS PERFECT JUSTICE

HIS LOVING COMPASSION,

It is not the fear of human arbitrary and punitive authority;

It is based upon a holy respect for HIS being Almighty GOD

From Whom we draw our being, the source of life,

From Whom we derive sustenance: spiritual, moral and physical.

 

Our LORD GOD did not come to judge but to save us from

The  moral iniquities of self-centered human nature;

JESUS CHRIST came as a MESSIAH

HE came with LOVING COMPASSION, not intimidation!

On our own strength, we are frail and vacillating,

It is self deceiving

To believe in our own good works

To achieve Salvation;

Salvation is a gift of HIS grace

So we cannot boast!
