From our Pastor:

Teaching the Fear of the Lord

Psalms 34:11 "Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord."

The psalmist calls people to attention as his subject is one of the most important that all mankind should study. Job said; "the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding." Lessons that all children need to be taught early in life, and all that will listen regardless of their age; to fear God is to respect Him, show high and special regard for. Even in writing His Name, one should always capitalize it and show respect to His Word in how they handle it. Then too, in showing one fears God, they should revere Him, proving their devotion, how they admire Him and exalt Him in their life. To revere God, shows that He is the one you worship and hold up above all others in your heart. It's the expression of the first love mentioned in Revelation 2:4. Showing you're not ashamed to be identified as a follower of Him and that He is worthy to be worshiped. To fear the Lord is to fear His displeasure of you. Loving Him so supremely that the desire of your heart is to please Him in all that you do.  The writer of Proverbs wrote in chapter 16:6; "By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil."  I believe what the Psalmist said in Psalm 36:1 (shows what happens when people have no fear of God): "The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes." A picture of typical people around us in this corrupt generation.
