Dear Mosaic Family, What do you fear? Financial security of your future? Not finding true love? Finding true love, and losing it? Do you fear for you health? Do you fear death? Did you know that the number one most often repeated commandment in the Bible is "Do not fear"? Scripture also teaches that "perfect love casts out all fear."
And yet, the Bible uses the word "fear" at least 300 times in reference to God. Scripture teaches that the beginning of wisdom is "the fear of the Lord." But what in the world does it mean to fear God? Why should I fear a loving God? How do I both love and fear God? Tomorrow, we are covering Ecclesiastes 5 & 6, where the Teacher tells us "Fear God." Join us tomorrowto learn how "fear of God" is the beginning of a fearless, joyful and meaningful life.
Praying for you, Pastor Jan
