 TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

DUTY IN SUM AND SUBSTANCE  [3]

          The third expression in 1 Peter 2:17, which sets forth the sum and substance of our duty to God and man, is “Fear God.”  God is to be revered, respected, and held in awe by His creatures on earth.  He is to be feared because He made us and the world in which we live (Psalm 100:3); also because He loves us and pities us (Jeremiah 31:3; Psalm 103:13).  We fear God by respecting His authority (Matthew 28:18), and by yielding to His will (Matthew 7:21).   (more next week)

          Watch In Search of the Lord's Way , Sunday at 8:30 AM on Massillon Cable channel 22.  If you have access to the internet, please visit our website:  www.masschurchofchrist.org
