God is an awesome God. In the Bible we find that God is not only a loving Father, but He is also the One who will strongly judge and punish sinners. In this message you will learn why we should fear God and what the fear of God truly means.

Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction. (ESV)

Proverbs 9:10-11

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
11 For by me your days will be multiplied,
and years will be added to your life. (ESV)

Proverbs 10:27

27 The fear of the Lord prolongs life,
but the years of the wicked will be short. (ESV)
