Maybe I should explain what I think a true Christian is: what many would call a radical Christian. He is one that believes that the Bible is the very Word of God, divinely given to the writers as they wrote His Word down. He knows that the Bible is the only book in history that can prove its' own authenticity. The radical Christian feels that he must obey God's Word first and above all else offer the love of Christ Jesus to even those who might hate the Christian. He hates the sin, but loves the sinner. He should be willing to share the Good News of Salvation, which comes through Christ Jesus only.
The LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways, to love Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the LORD's commands and decrees. We might sum this up to say, the fear of God is a reverent heartfelt submission to the greatness of God and His authority.
In the book of Psalm: Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
In my travels last week I was witnessing to a young man that said he believes God has turned away from Israel because of their disobedience and they will not be rescued as it speaks in the Book of Revelation. I know God's promised covenant with Abraham and his decenants will never be erased. He has always been true to His Word and He will give Israel the peace that she has sought for over two thousand years.
Be fruitful this week my Brothers and Sisters, for the time is near...
