The word “fear” in this context is better understood by the word reverence meaning… to honor with deep respect. Somewhat like the respect, we would give to a parent, grandparent, or someone of esteemed office or stature.
Therefore, having the right perspective of who God is, is essential to a healthy Christian life.
God is not some “higher power” or ” the big man upstairs” or some myth or religious diety compared to Buddha or any other god known to mankind.
To know Him is to worship Him for “Who He Is” and not for what he has done.
Here is Wisdom… Hear The Word, Understand It, and Do it.
Ephesians 5:17 says, “Be not unwise but understanding what the will of the Lord is.”
Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to the Lord. (Colossians 3:16).
