Do We Fear the LORD?

Do We Fear God? Acts 3:1-16 Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Main Point: If we will know and fear God then we will have understanding and wisdom in all of life! ‘Fear’ (phobos) = afraid, terror, dread – comes from the fact that He has the power to judge/discipline us. ‘Sovereign respect for God…makes us dread, above all things, to offend Him.’ Jesus... (Matthew 10:28) 1. Ananias & Sapphira conspired to test the LORD and to deceive the apostles to look generous/spiritual. verses 1-4 *They were not fearing God – the consequences from Him… Hebrews 12:4-7 2. There were severe consequences for their conspiring & deception. verses 5-10 Psalm 119:137 “You are righteous LORD and your judgments are right.” 3. Great Fear of the LORD came upon all the believers. verse 11 *We must have proper respect and reverence for the LORD! Let us examine ourselves lest we come under judgment! I Cor 11:28
