The most important thing we are told to do in the Bible in relationship to God is to fear him. The Bible mentions fearing God roughly 103 times. Compare that with the roughly 73 times we are told to love God and you’ll begin to understand that a solid reverence for the God who can, and rightly should, send us to the Hell we justly deserve is the bedrock of our faith in the same God who has not only canceled our debt, but called us co-heirs with Christ as well.
Too often we forget that our God is to be feared and we come to Him in a flippant and casual attitude which neglects the fear we should have for such an awesome and powerful God. How often have you reflected upon the fearful qualities of God? What happens when we don’t fear God?
