Proverbs 9: 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. The fear of the Lord is not a very comfortable idea for most Christians, and we tend to dilute it down to respect or reverence. However, it says fear, and I believe it toContinue reading “Inspiring Thoughts Number 3”
No one can overestimate the love God has for you. There is nothing good that God would not do for you. There is nothing He wouldn’t sacrifice for you. He couldn’t love you more than He does already.
Jesus did not rise again to save us from a regime or government, He rose again to save us from ourselves. He rose again to save us from the fear of death. He rose again to save us from eternal separation from God. He rose again to save us from death itself.
