To those that Fear the Lord

Lack of confidence and distrust may be all about us; dearth and death may mark the profession of religion; but let those who fear the Lord get together, and commune much upon HIS NAME, upon what He is; remembering that all fullness dwells in the Head of the assembly, the Firstborn from among the dead; and, that, in contrast to what is around, we are “light in the Lord”; also that not only is the fear of the Lord the beginning of wisdom, but it “is wisdom” (Job 28:28); likewise “in the fear of the Lord is strong confidence” (Prov. 14:26); also it is “a fountain of life to depart from the snares of death” (v. 27). How good and wholesome then is the word of Proverbs 23:17, “Be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long.”
