Do You Fear God?

Time to start our week with a gospel reminder.  Continuing Friday's book club theme of "Gospel Fear" I have a quote for you from counselor and author Ed Welch...

Do you ever think that your sins are too bad, and that forgiveness for those sins requires you to get your act together first? If so, you don’t fear God. You are minimizing his forgiveness. You are acting as though his forgiveness is ordinary, just like that of any person or make-believe god. In contrast, the fear of the Lord leads us to believe that when God makes promises too good to be true, they are indeed true.
