“You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry, you’d better not pout I’m telling you why, Jesus Christ is coming to town.”
Why don’t we have that feeling about our heavenly Father? Do we fear God?
We have so much of the “love gospel” in our churches, that we have no more fear of God. We don’t really take God at His Word. If we did, we would stop idolizing the things we idolize.
Firstly, the Bible tells us that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. What if we got an electric shock every time we looked at porn, or engaged in any sin? Do we know that Jesus Christ is coming to town? Do we live our lives like that? Instead, we teach the love of God all over the place.
Why aren’t we trying to live up to God’s standards? We don’t fear the Lord. If we did, we’d all be in better shape! We’d be buffeting our bodies…We wouldn’t cower…
We are told to love the sinner, but hate the sin. Yet, God doesn’t send the sin to hell; He sends the sinner!
As Christians, we are a peculiar people, a royal priesthood, a representative of Christ. Our faith should call us to greatness.
Pass the Salt!
