Easter: A Time For Deep Reverence

For Our Holy LORD

"God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints,
And to be held in reverence by all those around Him."
(Ps 89:7)


Amidst the disgust we feel for our national leaders who are so arrogant, selfish, narcissistic, corrupt and reprobate, we are thankful that we can worship the TRUE KING who humbly sacrificed HIMSELF to save us from our own disgusting sins (personal and national).

We must adore HIM with both Thanksgiving and Awe.

Please regard Charles Spurgeon's comments on the Scripture above:

"God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints. The holiest [people and the Angels] tremble in the presence of the Holy One; their familiarity is seasoned with the profoundest aweHow reverent should our worship be! Where angels veil their faces, men should surely bow in lowliest fashion… 'And to be had in reverence... The nearer they are, the more they adore. If mere creatures are struck with awe… yet more reverent in the presence of the Great King. God's children are those who most earnestly pray 'hallowed be thy name'. IRREVERENCE is REBELLION. Thoughts of the covenant of grace tend to create a deeper awe of God, they draw us closer to him, and the more his glories are seen by us in that nearer access, the more humbly we prostrate ourselves before his Majesty." (all emphases mine)

It is tempting to be downcast when we think about the evildoers temporarily running our governments.

However, we must remember they are but grasshoppers, and instead turn reverent hearts to the real LORD who rules providentially over all.

Hallelujah! "No king but King Jesus"!*

In Jesus’ Name,
