Be Not Afraid! Speak of Peace!

The only fear I want to have is “Fear of the Lord”.   I am human so I am not going to say I am never afraid, but more and more I am less afraid. Maybe because God didn’t drop me yet and I lived through much.    And maybe because I want to live to be at the next level one day (with God for all eternity).

The gift of fear of the Lord enables a person “to avoid sin and attachment to created things out of reverence and love of God.” Primarily, this gift entails a profound respect for the majesty of God who is the supreme being. Here, a person realizes his “creatureliness” and dependency upon God, has a true “poverty of spirit,” and never would want to be separated from God, who is love.

Luke 12:32
Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
