Esther 8:17b

(Read also Psalm 33:18 & Proverbs 1:7) These are two of dozens of verses on the “fear” of the LORD as a healthy component of our faith in God. As you prepare to worship the LORD today meditate on this seemingly strange half-verse. What is the place of fear in the conversion of the “unregenerate”? Did fear play any role in your own story of faith in Christ? How can you worship Him in both proper fear as well as the boldness to come into His presence that is taught in Hebrews 10:19-22?
