The Two Fears – Chris Poblete
There has been one aspect of faith that has always confused me. That is the concept of the fear of God. I have always struggled with what that really means and what that looks like in real life. It has always been an abstract thought and complex issue for me. I get loving God and revering Him, but fearing Him has not been as easy for me.
Now I have understood fearing man. I was a scrawny kid all through school and for awhile I dealt with my share of being picked on and made fun of, that is until the first day of fifth grade when I befriended one of the strongest guys in my class. Maybe that is why this whole fear God thing has been such a difficulty for me. I know I should not fear Him the same way I feared my elementary school tormentors.
Perhaps you have struggled with this concept as well. If so I have some great news for you. Read this book by Chris Poblete. In this book the author starts by discussing the nature of fear and its impact on our life. Through continuing this discussion to explore the nature of God and how a Holy fear of God frees us and empowers us to rid ourselves of those unholy fears.
This book is practical, easy to read, but very deep at the same time. I encourage you to read it.
