The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 NIV
What is the fear of the Lord? For unbelievers, it is a fear of eternal death and judgment which leads to eternal separation from God.. For us believers, it is a devout reverence to God for we have been set free from the power of sin and death.
The Fear (total devotion and awe of our Creator) of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. Through the Holy Spirit, we get understanding. The Fear of the Lord is us submitting to his will and giving up everything for him.
Therefore, since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us be filled with gratitude, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. For our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:28-29 NIV
