Our home church is working through a paragraph on the book of James that begins with the question, “Who is wise and understanding among you?”
In this introduction to a short series on this passage, we begin considering how the fear of God is necessary to wisdom. God’s word declares, “The fear of the LORD (Yahweh) is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!”
Many people have fear-based issues where their lives are directed by the things that scare them. The fear of the God of the Bible might seem like just one large representation of the same thing.
However, in reality, the fear of Yahweh is the attachment in a relationship that heals and cures every other fear. And, it is when we know the safety and security of this fear of God that we begin to gain wisdom and understanding of everything to do with life.
Join our home church as we explore both God’s Book, and our hearts, to see how to enter into a relationship with God in which our reverential fear of Yahweh sets us free to become the wise and understanding children of God.
