A Place For Trembling And Proper Fear Of The Lord

  1. The Fear Of The Lord
    A Place For Trembling And Proper Fear Of The Lord​

    26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. —Hebrews 10:26-27 (KJV)

    30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. —Hebrews 10:30-31 (KJV)

    28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29 For our God is a consuming fire. —Hebrews 12:28-29 (KJV)


    A Place For Trembling

    • Even as Paul described by combining "fear and trembling" (Philippians 2:12)
    • The Greek word for "trembling" is tromos (a trembling or quaking with fear)
    • Just as one would likely tremble in the presence of one who could take our life, so Jesus taught us to "Fear The Lord" (Matthew 10:2)
    A Proper "Fear Of The Lord" Includes
    • Reverence and awe...
    • Being afraid to offend God in any way...
    • A passionate desire to please God in any way, which requires great sacrifice.
    • A trembling and quaking if one knows they have offended God and have not obtained forgiveness.

    Serve God Acceptably With Reverence And Godly Fear
