Tonight, I'll continue "You Asked For It," my summer series with my students tackling their submitted questions about Christianity. Tonight's question is, "What does it mean to fear God?" I'll post my reflections tomorrow as usual, but since this seems a strange concept to many, I'd be curious to hear your thoughts. How has 'the fear of God' been a part of your Christian faith? Would you be comfortable with the label "God-fearing person?"
I'm a follower of Christ, an heir of the Reformation, and a Baptist - in that order. My wife Heather and I have been married since 2005 and are the proud parents of a little girl. I work as an Aviation Technical Publications editor. From 2005 to 2009 I served as Minister to Youth at Hazelwood Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and I'm now actively pursuing church planting.
Soli Deo Gloria!
