THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
What should a good sermon be about?
It should be about Jesus!
And, it should be about 20 minutes!
26 In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children
shall have a place of refuge.
27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the
snares of death.
Light from the Word.
The “fear of the Lord” is having awesome reverence for Him.
It is knowing He is omnipotent and omniscient!
It is knowing His character is complete holiness!
And, it is respecting His authority over our lives!
There are three results of this fear.
First, it brings “strong confidence” to the believer.
Whatever life throws at us, we know God is working FOR us!
Second, this fear of the Lord offers a “place of refuge.”
We find hope and trust in the Lord.
Believers are literally sealed in an atmosphere of surety.
For NOTHING can separate us from the Love of God! ( Romans 8:38-39)
Third, this fear of the Lord provides a “fountain of life.”
We find sweet peace in prayer.
We learn to trust the infallible inerrancy of Scripture.
And we are filled to overflowing with His Holy Spirit. ( John 7:38)
If you live in awesome reverence for the Lord,
that attitude will give you altitude!
THAT’S what life should be about!
