The fear of God is one of the most misunderstood concepts in the Bible. Many people, usually because of how their earthly father acted, have a faulty view of their Heavenly Father. They see him as being either too lenient, too strict, or completely absent. All three attitudes miss out on the true nature of the fear of God. This message explores the Biblical perspective on the only fear we are commanded to have, and seeks to clarify the seesaw relationship between love and fear of God.
