Do You Fear God?
Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. – Psalm 112:1
In this Scripture, the word feareth is the transliterated Hebrew word yare’, which means to fear, be afraid, but it also means to stand in awe of, be awed; to fear, reverence, honour, respect.
Under the Old Covenant, people had good reason to be fearful of God. He took out His wrath and punishment for their sins on them. However, when Jesus went to the Cross, He placed the entire wrath and punishment for our sins-past, present and future on Jesus.
Therefore under the New Covenant, fearing the Lord means to stand in awe of Him. We are no longer to fear that God will punish us. Instead we are to be in awe of how wonderful He is to us.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin? That He was raised from the dead? Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.” If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again. Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
