The Fear of the Lord and God's Discipline

The Fear of the Lord is a very misunderstood subject in the church. I find we're either in one ditch or the other. Once ditch being that God is out to catch us doing something wrong, and he'll punish us every chance he gets. So we better really watch our step. This results in our being terrified of him, and we'll rarely approach him for anything we may need. It's better to just leave him alone and not make him angry. The other ditch flows in the thinking that the Fear of the Lord is an Old Testament concept. It no longer applies for today. We are under Grace, and therefore everything we do is OK with God. He is just so enamored with us, that he will never become or be upset with us about anything. Do whatever you want, God is enthralled with you. Both of those concepts are ditches. This series will show what the true Fear of the Lord is. Why it is necessary. What it looks like. And how it benefits us. It also looks at the subject of God's Discipline, and correlates that into the subject of The Fear of the Lord.
