Summary

YLD message summary on Apr 19:

Fear of the Lord

 

Recap the lesson from last week- How to overcome our fears?

  • Just like the disciples, we have fears inside of us
  • Easter reminds us that Jesus has risen and our mistake is forgiven!
  • When we put our trust in Jesus, his presence make us strong, not to be afraid.

 

Fear of the Lord

  • Fear of God allows good things from God coming into our lives
  • Need to follow the requirements: if we don’t do what is required, there is a consequence for it
    • The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy one is understanding (Proverbs 9:10)
  • People get tickets for not doing things that are required of them. This is not a choice or an option.

 

  • The Bible tells us what God requires of us – fear the Lord
    • And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God. (Deut. 10:12)
    • The fear of God isn’t being afraid of God, but giving God proper respect.
    • Why would God require us to respect Him? To do what is best for us.
    • When we fear God, we show our awe, respect and appreciation to Him!

 

  • To fear the Lord is to hate evil
    • The beginning of the wisdom is to hate evil
    • We have to ask God to help us to hate evil
    • So we can discern and stay away from evil

 

  • When we remove this fear from our relationship with God, we start making excuses for our mistakes
  • Ask God to give you the fear in the Lord, to hate evil and to obey His commands
