What does it mean to walk in fear? Should we be afraid of God? Doesn’t this sound contradictory to the gospel? In this sermon Pastor Eric seeks to help us see that the fear of God is a necessary part of our gospel-centered lives.
1 Peter 1:17-21
17 And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you 21 who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
