  • God Is Love, And We Are Not

    Contributed on May 30, 2019

    A lot of us go through life with a watered-down idea of what God's love is. We will look at two incidents from the Gospel of Luke in which someone met that love face to face to help us understand both His love and His holiness.

    There is a saying that appears a few times in the Old Testament. Proverbs 9:10 puts it like this: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom". Other verses use slightly different wording, but they all declare the value of the "fear of the LORD". I was troubled by that more
