Fear

Filed under: Advent,Christmas,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Luke 1:50. from generation to generation he is merciful to those who fear him.

This form of the word “fear” means a mix of dread and respect or reverence. Our emotions about God should be a combination. We can dread the power of God and His judging us because of our sins and disobedience while we revere that same power through which all things were and are created. As we come to know more of God we become aware of His great mercy. It is this mercy that led God to separate from His Son, His Word, Who was with Him from the beginning and sent Him to earth. This is what we celebrate this season. But we must remember while celebrating His birth as a person in flesh and blood that He was always in the shadow of the cross. We celebrate covered in His blood and prepare for His return. Our question is are we doing our part to prepare?
