Frequently throughout Scripture we are exhorted to “fear” the Lord. What does this mean and how do we manifest appropriate fear? Today we find that the people of God manifest their fear of God by hungering for His Word and tangibly demonstrating their attentiveness both with their bodies and their lips. Fear, in other words, manifests itself in concrete actions that communicate respect and attentiveness. And attentiveness to the Word of God means growing in our understanding of it not simply treating it as a magic talisman.
