"Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;"
Hebrews 5:7 KJV
Christianity is all about Christlikeness now for the believer. Christianity is not about behavior modification but heart transformation. When the Spirit of Christ is in you, you will be transformed to become like Jesus in reality.
And one of the core characteristics of Christ was His fear of God. Even though He was a Son He learned obedience through the things He suffered. In the days of His flesh, He cried out to God who could save Him from inevitable death and God heard Him and raised Him back to life because He feared God.
Are you walking in the fear of God as a child of the Most High? Just because you are a child does not mean that the Father does not deserve your honor, reverence and fear.
In Malachi 1:6, God asked, "A son honors his father, And a servant his master. If then I am the Father, Where is My honor? And if I am a Master, Where is My reverence? Says the Lord of hosts To you priests who despise My name. Yet you say, ‘In what way have we despised Your name?’ (Malachi 1:6 NKJV).
God spoke to the priests who despised His name by offering unworthy gifts at the altar of the Lord during old testament worship. Today we are His royal priests in Christ Jesus. If God is our Father, where is His honor in your life?
He is your Lord, do you fear Him as such? God brought us near to Himself and that alone must provoke utmost reverence and godly fear in our hearts. A man who loves you enough to go to the grave for you and beyond deserves your fear.
When we walk in the fear of God, we will fear nothing. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. The fear of the Lord produces life. If we are afraid of men, darkness, Satan, death, the future, and the unknown; chances are we are not afraid of the One who should be feared- God. Jesus was fearless of the religious elites, the political class, and zealots because He was an expert in one fear-the fear of the Lord.
I fear nothing because I fear God. The life of God flows towards the fear of the Lord.
