Daily Meditations: Come Boldly Not Fearfully

Daily Meditations: Come Boldly Not Fearfully

0

Revere God with an awesome respect but don’t be afraid of God. Don’t misunderstand Scriptures.

Yeshu’a told us in Matthew 22:38 that the greatest commandment is to “Love the Lord your God”.

We understand from 1st John 4:18 that “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear”.

When the King James Version of The Bible was written the English people used fear and reverence interchangeably.

So when the translators used fear they meant reverence.

We know this because Scripture teaches that when you become born again God gives you a new spirit that is fed by His Holy Spirit and of that spirit, 2 Timothy 1:17 says “God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”.

Can you go boldly into the presence of one of whom you are afraid? But God expects us to “come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”-Hebrews 4:16.
