Some Bible verses seem to indicate that we should not walk in fear, while others seem to encourage us to have “fear” of the Lord. In this video Jordan explains a solution to this seeming contradiction and answers the question, “should we fear God?”
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want… Within these words is a powerful encouragement and comfort from God, who promises us rest and peace through Jesus Christ. By simple, child-like faith, we can lean on the faithfulness of God and the full provision he has given us through the gospel. This is how we find true rest for our souls.
