Fear or Faith

There are many things we can fear. We can fear what an evil person might do to us. We can fear the all-powerful God of heaven. We can fear animals such as lions or even spiders. We can fear lightning, devastating storms, floods, and earthquakes. We can fear heights, tight quarters, public speaking, or even clowns. We can fear cancer that can take over our bodies and cut our lives short. We can even fear a virus that can cause us sickness, pain and death. There are so many things that we can fear. Many people live their lives in fear. But as a Christian, should we have fear?

We should have an appropriate fear for God.

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire. (Heb. 12:28-29)

He is the creator of all things; He is all powerful; He will take vengeance on all those who obey unrighteousness. But we also know that he is a loving and merciful God who has made us His children. The fear Christians should have for God is a respect and reverence for Him. But what about fear for other people and other things?
