I’m taking a break from writing about the Old Testament today; mostly because I need to remind myself that I am hidden in Jesus. My fear of God is growing because I know that he never changes, and his reaction to sin is humanly destructive. I’m reminded that if I truly love him, I will obey his commands, but I’m not sure if I always do!
If you are at a point that you are trembling in fear, remember Jesus; we are safe from God’s wrath because of him. We are dearly loved by God because of Jesus; we are his friend, he is our Father, though also our King. We can walk with confidence, knowing that we are safe, and that he has snatched us from the fire. Above all things in heaven and on earth, he loves us. Rest in confidence knowing this is true.
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8
