Fear of God, Intimacy, Musings

Equal Treasures

Let the fear of God guide me and the love of God keep me. Both are equal treasures, neither to be taken lightly or forsaken for the other.

The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant. (Psalm 29:14 ESV)

One cannot exist without the other. Deep intimacy and friendship with The Lord is reserved for those who honor and revere Him, because the weight of His secrets are too glorious to be taken lightly. Fear and reverence are needed to safeguard deep love.

At the end of the day, He is God, and we are still man. He invites us into friendship, provided this one term and condition remains.
