Thought For The Day: Reverence for God is the secret of staying pure in life

Yesterday, we saw that reverence for God makes a person a reference point in life. Reverence for God is the secret of staying pure in life. Joseph did not fall into the trap of temptation and sin because of his reverence for God (Genesis 39:9).

Now, what are the implications of living in the reverential fear of God?
They are:
i. Living with a conscience that is alive (Act 24:16)
Those who are dedicated to God have a tender conscience. People who are not dedicated to God have a conscience that appears seared with hot iron (1 Timothy 4:2).

ii. Living to give God pleasure (2 Corinthians 5:9)
Living in the reverential fear of God is living to give God pleasure; people who are dedicated to God make giving pleasure to God the most important objective of their lives and existence. People who are not dedicated to God live to please themselves.

iii. Living to give glory to God (1 Corinthians 10:31, Isaiah 42:12)
When you live in the reverential fear of God, the actions of your life are carried out with the consideration of glorifying God. You do not do things if they do not glorify God.

iv. Saying ‘yes’ to what God says ‘yes’ to and saying ‘No’ to what God says ‘No’ to (Hebrews 6:3)
Living in the reverential fear of God means saying ‘yes’ to what God says ‘yes’ to and saying ‘no’ to what God says ‘no’ to. People who are not dedicated to God say ‘No’ to what God says ‘Yes’ to and say ‘Yes’ to what God says ‘No’ to.

Beloved, make up your mind to be dedicated to God by saying ‘Yes’ to what God says ‘Yes’ to. Reject what God rejects.

Remember this: Reverence for God is the secret of staying pure in life.
