Fearing God

If we are truly hating evil in our lives and the world at large, then we are fearing God. Once we understand from a place of humility who God is, and what He truly loves and hates, then we too will share in His passion.

[Rick Roeber]

Proverbs 8:13 … The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Proverbs 1:7 … The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Psalm 97:10 … Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

Romans 12:9 … Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. ♥
