The Holy Spirit recently impressed upon me
the importance of respecting (fearing) God. It is scriptural and keeps us
from being a fool, because if you don’t believe in God, you will become a
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of
knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
God has said there is no preference
treatment with Him in that He does not discriminate toward anyone; we are
all treated the same and will all have the same judgment upon what we do
with the Word.
The Word of God is clear and open, all
that’s left is to obey and believe it. A little child may cover his eyes
with his hands and say, “You can’t see me now,” and believes you really
can’t see him, and that is precisely how so many people are in regards to
the Word of God. They don’t believe it and don’t want to acknowledge the
many truths found therein.
They may say something silly like “I don’t
think God exists because I don’t see him” or “God is love and he would
never condemn the way I am living my life.” Whether they realize it or
not, they have cut themselves off by their erroneous belief and negated
the truths found in the Bible.
The Holy Spirit wants us to understand that
the Bible is a fixed point of reference. It is a moral compass designed by
God to show our need for Him and to help us draw closer to the Lord.
Without a fixed point you will be lead astray by moral relativity and I
would urge you not to cut yourself off from truths found in the Bible by
saying, “I don’t believe in that.” Check the Word and see what it says. If
you have a belief that is different, dig into the Word and find the truth
because you will be held accountable. We will all stand before the Lord
one day and be judged: what will you hear, praise or rebuke?
