Souls to fear God

by on March 24, 2010

Justin Moffatt led the 3rd devotional on Deuteronomy 6:13-19 and shared 2 main points.

There is a Fear that leads to Love (Deut. 6:13-19)

We are to fear God because he is the mighty God that created the earth and because God is a jealous God that desires his people to have totally allegiance to Him. He will punish those that do love and fear Him completely. God’s jealousy is the language of love: he does not want other God and idols to break his covenant relationship with his people.

There is a Love that banishes Fear (1 John 4:13-18)

Yet God’s perfect love for believers casts out the fear of God’s wrath and final judgement. The love that Christ embodied and lived out among believers is their confidence in the day of judgment.

“Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take oaths in his name.” – Deuteronomy 6:13

After the devotion, we had the chance to look at a copy of the Bible and Common Prayer Book that came on the First Fleet. The royal family had signed the Prayer Book. Truly amazing!
