Scripture tells us that the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord. But just what is the fear of the Lord? Today’s devotional explains. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
“The fear of the Lord is a brief description for true religion. It is an inward condition, betokening hearty submission to our heavenly Father. It consists very much in a holy reverence of God, and a sacred awe of him. This is accompanied by a child-like trust in him, which leads to loving obedience, tender submission, and lowly adoration. It is a filial fear. Not the fear which hath torment; but that which goes with joy, when we ‘rejoice with trembling.’” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XXXVI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1890), p. 338]
