Exodus 20:20 (NIV)
20 Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”
- Fear is mentioned twice in this passage. One says to be afraid and one says not be afraid. How do you understand the difference between the two?
- Should we fear God or not?
- What kind of fear does God want?
- Does He want us close to Him or far away?
- How does fear accomplish this?
