the fear of the lord in the shadow of the cross
What is the fear of the Lord?
How does God’s wrath and justice perfectly and wholly coexist with the grace of Jesus Christ?
How do I treasure the cross for what it truly is?
Motivated by these questions and the frequently misinterpreted concept of ‘the fear of the Lord,’ this essay will help us look beyond the shadow of the cross in which we find refuge into the ‘consuming fire’ that is our God; trembling not only at His holy and righteous wrath, but at the miraculous power of Jesus Christ to save us from that wrath.
