WORD FOR TODAY. CJM

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.” Matthew 6:9

Sometimes I think people in the church are far too casual with God. They have a relationship with God, but they’ve forgotten the holiness of God. They say Jesus is their “homeboy,” but their so-called homeboy created the universe. Let’s show some respect. This is God Almighty we’re talking about. Jesus taught us to pray, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name” (Matthew 6:9 NKJV). Holy is His name. Reverenced is His name.

Psalm 111:10 tells us, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (NKJV). Fearing God means that we have reverence for Him. I like this definition of it: “a wholesome dread of displeasing Him.” It isn’t so much a fear of retribution; it’s a dread of displeasing Him. It’s a dread of dishonoring Him or disappointing Him.

We should never lose our reverence for God.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
