Facing the wages of sin.
There is no fear of God before their eyes. (Romans 3:18 KJV)
Fear of God would solve all problems caused by sin in this world. If all mankind had a fear of God’s recompense for sin he would undoubtedly make choices in life that would be pleasing unto God. Many choose to hold hands with the devil, fellowshipping with darkness, and making no room for consideration of the wages of their sin and the sure wrath of God to fall harshly upon them.
Living in fear of God is to have a heart filled with enlightenment of His spiritual knowledge and supernatural power. It is viewing the scope of His perfection and holiness in contrast to our natural bent towards darkness and evil. It is seeing His great grace and mercy against the natural law at work against sin.
For man to continue deliberately live in sin and fellowshipping with the god of this world naturally invites the unrelenting wrath of God upon his life. God will slam the hammer of condemnation and death upon any man who does not choose to accept His free gift of mercy and grace; God is justified in bringing about the wages of sin and death to any man who does not acknowledge Him by accepting His free gift of eternal life through faith, bringing about new spiritual life freeing man from an eternal Hell by removing the sting of death and bringing honor and glory to Him now and for all eternity.
