The Fear of the Lord

In the New Testament we see the disciples learning the “fear of the Lord”. They start out “admiring” God, but they learn through a steady stream of encounters that He is the ultimate authority over sickness, demons, food, sin, weather, resources, their own weaknesses and finally, over death itself. Our lifetimes are lessons in learning about the authority of God. The more we know, the more we can respect/honor, believe and obey. As God introduces more of Himself we see that there is more at which to marvel. This produces the natural effect of awe, trust and should lead to a greater desire to obey. The three fruits then of the fear of the Lord are: honor, faith and obedience. PRO 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.
