Eternity Day 16

Driven by Eternity       DAY 16

GOOD FEAR

He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure. (Isaiah 33:6 NIV)

This morning John Bevere begins with this statement.  “Jesus could hardly have been clearer in His comparison. “Do not fear men, who can merely destroy your body, but cannot touch your soul,” He said. “Instead, fear God, who has the power to kill you and then destroy your soul in hell” (Matthew 10:28).”

Living this life in fear of man is a mistake.  We fear missing out, not being included and sounding different.  And we do all that while hoping dearly that we will know heaven.  Trying to live in two different worlds at once will create dangerous blind spots in our lives.  We will pick up thoughts and things that keep us from seeing heaven and heaven’s way.  This world is motivated and maddened by resentment and unforgiveness.  We cannot grab hold of heaven and harbor the hurts of here.  Just these two things can and will lead us away from the things of God, the things of heaven.  Good fear is fearing that we will miss out on the things of God, not man
