Francis of Assisi: fear of God

Thursday, October 4, 2018
    Feast of Francis of Assisi, Friar, Deacon, Founder of the Friars Minor, 1226
    Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.”
    —Hebrews 12:28,29 (NIV)
    Where there is fear of God to keep the house, the enemy can find no way to enter.
    ... St. Francis of Assisi (1182-1226), The Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis of Assisi, London: R. Washbourne, 1882, p. 101 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 12:28-29; Job 1:8; Ps. 66:6-7; Eccl. 12:13; Eph. 5:8-10; 1 Pet. 2:17; Rev. 14:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me ever mindful of Your authority.
