David Wheaton: The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is … Not Fearing God

30 Nov

“The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).

It seems almost disingenuous now for America to celebrate Thanksgiving, a day set aside to give thanks to God for His blessings on our nation, when a majority of our nation doesn’t revere or even acknowledge God.  This was confirmed in this past election when our country voted decisively for a leader who is stridently pro-abortion and pro-homosexual, positions that are God-rejecting at the very core.

The command to fear God is written all over Scripture, with promises and examples of blessing for those who do and discipline for those who don’t.  So while we often are encouraged to love God, why do we hear so little about fearing Him?  And what does it mean to fear God and how do we grow in our fear of the Lord?

This Thanksgiving weekend on The Christian Worldview, we’ll observe ways in which the fear of God has been pushed aside in our country and how we individually can grow in the fear of God in our hearts.
