Fearing God

"And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul," (Deuteronomy 10:12 NKJV) Fearing God in The Holy Bible is not how it sounds. It does not mean being scared of God. The ancient word for fear actually translates to reverence, a deep respect and feeling of awe. That is usually a good feeling and not a scary, bad feeling. It is one used for someone you usually honor. So, when you "fear" God, you are actually showing him deep respect and awe...not running for your live, ducking, or going into hiding. We show this in actions by "walking in His ways, loving and serving him with all your heart and soul." So fear God and serve Him! Love, Beau
