KNOW GOD AND FEAR HIM!
The reward of humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, honor and life. Proverbs 22:4
How fitting it is to wrap up the first quarter of the year in remembrance of Christ’s fulfillment of the Law and the prophets (Matt 5:17-19). We, believers, are no longer bound by ceremonial laws but is forever married to God’s moral laws that are tied to His nature and character. We, the Church of Jesus Christ is “a holy nation” (I Pet 2:9) and our standing order from God is to FEAR HIM; REVERE HIM. The Scripture says, “be holy because I am holy” (I Pet 1:16).
As followers of Christ, we have a solemn responsibility and accountability to God, to make holiness the conquest of our day-to-day living. It is of utmost importance that we do, because our obedience to live in holiness commands either blessings or curses to our lives (Deut 28), to our families and everything we do.
KNOW GOD AND FEAR HIM! The Bible contains stories of real people whom the Lord Almighty have taken to GREATER HEIGHTS, only because they have cultivated the fear of the Lord in their hearts. Let’s rise and do the same! “The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor, and life.” Prov 22:4
Thankfully, we are not on our own. Our Helper and Advocate, Holy Spirit can bring out Christ’ holiness in us, as we surrender to Him.
