Do you serve God or does God serve you? If you picked the second option, you simply don’t know the true and living God. God has the might and the right to be feared, respected, and obeyed. Until you learn the fear of God, you will never by overwhelmed by the mercy of God.
Take a look at this incredible passage in Isaiah 63. Meditate on the fury and just anger of a God who we have sinned against. Understand that all of that wrath was poured out on Jesus on the Christ. He took all of the fury…in your place.
Fear Him. Love Him. It changes everything.
