Ok so the dictionary helps to allows us to understand the meaning of Reverence, now what does our Heavenly Father word say about it.....
“Observe my Sabbaths and have reverence for my sanctuary. I am the Lord. Leviticus 19:30 & Leviticus 26:2
“But I, by your great love, can come into your house; in reverence I bow down toward your holy temple.” Psalm 5:7
Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. Psalms 19:9
Doesn’t your reverence for God give you confidence? Doesn’t your life of integrity give you hope? Job 4:6
Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. Philippians 2:12
I believe it is time to understand and walk in a true reverence for God, so what does this look like. God our heavenly Father lavished love so great that He gave His only begotten Son for our very lives to remove the very nature of sin from us. Then He gave us His Holy Spirit to dwell with us, to correct us and guide us throughout the enemy’s every destructive attack on our lives. As we seek daily to understand this love and grace, we will grow deeper in an understanding of how holy our God truly is and how much He seeks a personal and intimate relationship with us. Wow, this truly takes my breath away every time I think and pray about His love for me. So when we met together on a Sunday morning it is to lift up Our Heavenly Father in worship, to glorify His name to be in Reverence of Him who has given so much love, grace and mercy.
To be able to glorify, worship and adore our God, what more as his children can we ask for ......
