Reconsidering Our Perspective of God with Spiritual Awakening in View
The call in Scripture for our ‘reverence’ or fear of God is more frequent than the call to ‘love God.’ Without the fear of God, we are blinded by our own shadow, seeing little difference between mortals and the immortal. The more we reverence God, the higher self-worth and self-esteem rise without becoming self-centered, or being blinded by pride and arrogance. Nobility emerges. We see ourselves as God’s children, reflecting His image.
