Fear the LORD and Our Faith & Love
In remembering and meditating on the words of the Apostle Paul, “I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them but rubbish so that I that I may gain Christ…” we ought to be moved to humbly worship and serve Jesus Christ the blessed and only Sovereign! To Fear the Lord in reverence is to yield our will and our lives to His Lordship in faithfulness and love. Knowing who He is and what great things He has and is doing for us should inspire and move us to bow the knee and our will to His will in humble obedience. This morning we will examine this truth by first listening to the “word of faith” found in Romans 10:8-17. With this passage we will establish that faith in what Christ has and is accomplishing for us moves our hearts to confess, believe, and obey in Him as our Lord and Sovereign! We will also establish from Psalm 130:1-4 that this response to Christ’s sacrifice as Lord moves us to fear Him in faithfulness and love as we serve Him with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength!
