The Challenge question on The Word is:

Which is greater: your fear of God, or your love for Jesus?

Thank you for participating. God Bless you :)

Praying the world will read God's Word for themselves, and not rely on what someone else tells them His Word says or means.

  1. Hmm ….wow! Well this is hard lol ….hmmmm…wow Magz! Where’d you pull this one from? šŸ™€..I’ll say both! Because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and falling in love with Jesus is the BEST I’ve ever done. So there you have it lol šŸ˜ŠšŸ’• God bless! Xxoo

  2. Wow Margret I am caught I’m between the two… I believe both are equally important. Starting out with the fear of God and loving Jesus. But then I believe loving the Lord helps to be obedient and reverence him more.

  3. There are biblical passages that command us to do both – FULLY. These are commands and not suggestions, so we should always strive to do both, as faithfully as we can.

    However, if I *had* to choose, Iā€™d select fear (by a hair). After all, if I love Jesus but do not possess a well-informed and reverential fear of Him as well (the book of Revelation is important to bear in mind here), then that love – while genuine and heartfelt – fundamentally lacks a certain depth.

  4. Perfect love casts out fear. Originally I feared His just wrath when I answered His call to salvation. But now that I’m born again, I don’t walk as a Christian in such a way that my behavior is controlled by fear. I know that now I’m His beloved child.
    But…the reality of fearing God in my accountability in how I represent Him in my messages is a constant part of my consciousness. I take very seriously how I represent His word. I’ve deleted lots of my posts for example that wasn’t quite right, or I was unsure of. Because I’m going to have to give an account for what I’ve been given and how I used it. Especially in my representation of God’s message to humanity.

    So I don’t know that I have an answer to your profound and interesting question. šŸ˜
