What Does It Mean to “Fear God”?

Episode 319 Show Notes 

From the Show

Whatever you fear, ultimately is your God. Some people fear loss of income. They fear loss of their job. They fear the loss of a relationship because they turned their spouse into an idol…So, to fear God alone drives out our fear of other things and other people and other places.

—Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. There are a few places in the Bible that says we ought to fear God. My question is how does this fit with trusting that God is our loving Father?

2. What should we be thinking about when we take the Lord’s Supper? Should we be meditating on his death or should we focus more on our forgiveness?

3. What does Jesus mean when he prays that we will be one with him the way he is one with the Father in the Book of John?

4. Why did God choose Israel out of all the possible nations he could have chosen from to be his people?
