This morning I was thinking about the fear of the Lord being a good thing. Perhaps in some other religion(s), the fear of God or god(s) is a scary thing. But Christians, acknowledging themselves as sinners and knowing that God is all holy, fear God more out of respect and love than out of true fear. Jesus has come and shown us that God is our most loving Father and we, as his adopted sons and daughters, can approach (run to) him without fear as long as we have the proper attitude. This is a most wonderful relationship that's, shall I say, made in heaven.
