Fear God and Live
Luke 12:4-5 (KJB) And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
There is a fear based on things in this world which ultimately leads to certain eternal death.
There is godly and spiritually productive fear which conveys eternal life to the quickened alive soul.
Fear based in things and people in this world can bring about physical death to the body. However, are not ever able to touch the soul!
Only God can affect the soul of man, either by imparting eternal life to a soul or ushering it into the fires of hell forever.
Fear God who holds your eternal future within His nail scarred hands. Fear God who can provide a secure eternal future. Fear God who can impart eternal life.
Fear God, not the god of this world! Place no fear in things of man at work in this world which potentially can harm the outer shell, the physical body of mankind, but never touch his or her eternal soul.
