Yesterday was very interesting, insightful, eye opening. A hard day but one that brought clarity and answered many questions.

For several years I have been praying for my friend Sami. Sami professes a Christian belief yet does not attend church nor read her bible. Refusing to be baptized, she harbors deep seeded hostility, bitterness and unforgiveness while seeing herself as worthy of heaven. Continually, justifying her ‘christian’ lifestyle choices, Sami is lost thinking she is saved. In a conversation yesterday Sami responded as she frequently does: “God and I will have a talk about that when I get to heaven.”

And then I saw it. I at last understood why Sami had chosen to follow her own misguided walk of faith. I finally understood why Sami rejects His Word, choosing instead her own ‘form of christianity.’

Sami, like millions of others has no fear of God.!!.

Mark Driscoll, T.D. Jakes, Francis, Benny Hinn, Ken Copeland, John Hagee, Rick Warren… Sami is not alone. Where there is no fear of God, people do what seems right in their own eyes.

Spurgeon writes: “Faith moulds us, fear moves us. Noah had a loyal reverence of God. He feared him as the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Fear made Noah hew the trees and square the timbers, wield the axe and the hammer. Fear wrought in him diligence and speed. It made him despise the observations of onlookers, and build for his life in brave defiance of the spirit of the age, and the judgment of the wise. Perhaps I speak to persons who are in fear of the wrath to come. I rejoice that you have faith enough to fear. By the way of that faith which brings you unto fear, you will be brought out of it. Believe God in justice till you tremble; then see that justice vindicated in the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, and rest in the mercy of God, which, through the cross, comes justly down to guilty men. A holy fear will put wings upon your heels, and help you to fly to Jesus. Moved by fear, may you be drawn and driven to the Lord Jesus!”

The fear of God… the beginning of wisdom.
