All throughout the Old Testament and New Testament, we read that God’s people should “fear the Lord”. We also are told in many verses to “fear not” or “do not fear”. Fear is a hard emotion for us to understand as it is; the differences in these verses can make it extra confusing! But because the fear of the Lord is a topic woven throughout all of Scripture, we know it’s important. So we have to ask: what is the fear of the Lord? How does it impact our real, everyday lives? And if it’s a good thing, how do we grow in our fear of the Lord? Many conversations on this topic simplify the fear of the Lord to awe and reverence, and that’s not wrong. But this is such a tremendous calling for believers that it’s worth digging deeper. Come join our conversation!
