Luke 12

Good Morning God Fearer’s.   Let’s dig into Luke 12.

What are you most afraid of?  The Bible tells us fear not.  In some form or other we are told not to fear more than 200 times.  Literally we’re not supposed to fear anything… well except one thing.  Proverbs tells us that Fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom.  We know wisdom is knowledge applied.  If we don’t apply what we learn to our lives it’s just information bouncing around in our minds - useless to us.  We never grow up in our faith.  We never mature.  

Some 278 times we’re told to fear God.  In each case, the word used in the original speaks to trembling, pants wetting fall like a dead man fear.  That seems weird… to actually be afraid of God.  Yes He is full of Grace and Mercy… but He is also perfect Justice - and we sin.  Did you ever get in trouble as a kid and mom said, “Wait until your dad gets home?”  It’s kind of like that.  Because of our sin there is Hell to pay… literally!  However He loves us enough to offer us forgiveness, redemption and reconciliation through Jesus’ blood shed on the Cross.  Simply open your heart and receive Him.

“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭12‬:‭4‬-‭7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Love you all!  Dig in!  Get to know Him!
