The Root of the Problem: Chapter 20 – No Fear of God (Excerpt)

The Root of the Problem (cover)What kind of fear should we have of God? Most are quick to answer that this is to be a reverent respect for God. The Hebrew writer spoke of this kind of fear when he said we are to “offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe” (Hebrews 10:28). Respect for God will cause one to listen to the word of God and seek to do what He says. This type of fear is absolutely necessary.

Yet there is another type of fear that we should not ignore. Fear of God should include respect for Him, but we should remember the terror of God for what He can do to us.

“It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31).
