CQOD: 08/14/06 -- Owen: a desirable fear

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 14, 2006
Commemoration of Maximilian Kolbe, Franciscan Friar, Priest, Martyr, 1941
    By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the LORD one turns away from evil.
    -- Proverbs 16:6 (ESV)

    That fear which keeps from sin and excites the soul to cleave more firmly to God, be the object of it what it will, is no servile fear, but a holy fear and due reverence unto God and His word.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, strengthen my belief in You, so that I may fear You only.
