THE CONCLUSION, WHEN ALL HAS BEEN SAID, IS – –
when everything has been heard,
is: fear God and keep His commandments,
because this applies to every person.
For God will bring every act to judgment,
everything which is hidden,
whether it is good or evil.*
Do we tremble at the thought of the law of gravity? Probably not. Do we respect it enough that we fear the consequences of jumping off a high building? Probably so.
We must likewise respect God and His laws which lead to Abundant Life, and fear the consequences of disregarding them. He is the Sovereign God who loves us so much that He sent His only Son to take upon Himself the punishment for our sins – – but who also established unavoidable, dire consequences for those who choose to reject Him.
This applies to every person whether saint or sinner, and there is much that Jesus said that the wise will fear to ignore in our Day.
