While reading “Experiencing the Presence of God” by Tozer, I came across this quote:
In Ecclesiastes we read, ‘Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil’ (Ecc 12:13-14). There is a lot of difference between the man who is convinced that this is true and the man who doubts it or does not believe it at all. For if we believe that we must fear God, that this is our whole duty and that God shall bring every work into judgment, whether it is good or evil, there is going to be a difference in the way we view God’s moral law.
I had to ask myself: what does it mean to fear God, and do I fear Him?
Is my fear of God a holy-awe-inspiring fear, or an afraid-of-monsters fear? How does my life reflect this fear of God?
