Sermon: Having True Love and Reverence For the Lord
To genuinely love God means that we truly have reverence for Him: we fear Him. When we truly revere the Lord (as we are meant to do in worship) we are giving Him the honor due His Holy Name: We acclaim Him LORD of all, the only True God, the Holiest of all Holiness, the Supreme Lover of our Souls and in Christ. He is our Saviour, our Master, our Lord: the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! When we revere God for who He truly is... and give Him all the glory... and love Him with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength... THEN we are at the place of humble faith and true estimation of the Majesty and Glory of Almighty God that will lead us into wisdom. Yes, once our attitude of faith in Him and trust in Him and love for Him is honestly expressed in our hearts, THEN (and only then) are we at the place of the beginning of wisdom, heavenly wisdom. In humble faith as we are loving God and revering Him, we become wise. We have holy wisdom!
