As Christians, we should fear God. As Deuteronomy 6v24 says, “And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God for our good always that he might preserve us alive, as we are this day.”
Fearing the Lord means we do not fear the created thing because God is more powerful than anything he has created. To fear anything other than God is making it an idol because you are saying that the created thing is more fearful than God.
The fear we should have of God as Christians should not be a scared type of fear, but instead an awed fear of God, that means we obey God’s commands. To fear God and keep his commands is a recurring theme that appears throughout the Bible. The fear that we should have as Christians is a fear of God's holiness. It is because God is holy, holy, holy that we fear him.
Therefore keep a strong guard against Satan with the armour of light, because with Christ as your captain you have nothing to fear.
