The Fear of God
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."Proverbs 9:10. The reason why Christians do not stop sinning is because they do not know Jesus, and therefor they do not fear and respect Him. They are foolish. They have no knowledge of God.
Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:34 "Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame."
That is what is wrong with most professing Christians. They have never met Jesus. They do not know Him. They are on their way to hell. They have an image of Jesus in their mind, but it is false.
Those who know Jesus fear and respect Him. We read in Hebrews 12:29 "For our God is a consuming fire." You cannot walk with God and live in sin. The reason why you sin is because you are far from God. "Without holiness no man shall see God" Hebrews 12:14.
Repent, stop sinning, be holy. Seek Jesus before it is too late. Know Him, fear Him and obey Him or you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
