This Week’s Sermon –   Pastor Guang will preach on Proverbs: The Fear of the Lord. The Bible says that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs 1:7). What does it mean to fear the LORD? The word fear has two meanings. First, it means to revere, to be in awe, and to tremble before Him because of His excellence and greatness. Second, it means to be afraid of the LORD because of His wrath towards sin and evil. The bible holds rich promises for those who fear the LORD. For example, Psalm 25 says, “Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose. His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land. The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.” Psalm 25:12-14

Memory Verse: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.” Proverbs 1:7
