  • Nathaniel smith on Philippians 2
    dont get me wrong however I do feel that if you are to truly fear somone it should be God in every shape and form, it has always been used with the same emotions present. there will always be fear and trembling before God. especially the father. however within this scripture it tells us there is no reason to fear thus giving this a different meaning as he cares for us even tho of his power and his able wrath. the phrase "fear and trembling" has been used many times in the past. truly by all rights he should be the only thing you ever fear in a round about way and should be cautious for all reasons.... for me however I've never had a fear of him other than hurting him or failing him. the pain it makes me personally feel after the fact in my heart and soul hurts more than I could care to compare to anything else. my fear is not what should compell me towards God when he says fear is the opposite of faith....he really means it. you either fear him or have total faith in him basically. if your going to have faith and pray; why worry or fear for any other reason than love for him in which he made you for? fear came upon adam and eve when they ate of sin. the point here is every type of fear you have should be for God. but in this case you have no reason to fear as it would only get in the way, unless it be for our reason for being in the first place. you fear killing that love for him. that in the end is all that should remain. honestly fear should come second to love and faith in him. but if there is any reason to truly fear....it is of God in some shape or form.
