For many, Christmas is a time of cheer, but for many others it is a time of fear. Fear can do many things, cause us to act and think differently, and keep us from or compel us to take action. In Hebrew, the word for fear has two meanings: dread and terror or awe and wonder. In life, fear can keep us from fear, dread and terror keeps us from awe and wonder. Move from fear to fear with these 3 steps.
Why do we have a dread and terror view of God and why should we not fear God with terror? Do we think God is out to get us? Do we think God is mad at us? What does the Bible say about this? How do we go from having a dread and terror fear of God to an awe and wonder fear of God?
