“Root” and the “Fruit”

Fear thisI was blessed during a 10K run by a Steve Lawson sermon on The Fear of God from Proverbs (and the rest of Scripture). His statement: “The fear of God is the Root, departing from evil is the Fruit!”

Fear God“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction. – Proverbs 1:7

Depart from evil“Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and turn away from evil. – Proverbs 3:7
If you have never felt fear before the God of the universe, you may have never been before Him! When the angel comes to earth to proclaim the Everlasting Gospel to every nation, the first two words out of his mouth are: FEAR GOD.

“And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those dwelling on the earth, even to every nation and kindred and tongue and people, saying with a great voice, Fear God and give glory to Him! For the hour of His judgment has come. And worship Him who made the heaven and the earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” – Rev. 14:6,7
