What's New
Psalm 2:11

Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Psalm 2:11

The word -fear- in many Bible verses
means respect and reverence for our merciful Lord.
To " serve the Lord with fear " as
written in Psalm 2:11 tells us the humble and blessed relationship
children of God have with Him.

Our Heavenly Father proclaims to us in Psalm 2:11 that in serving Him with
obedience from the heart we can rejoice ...as there is much to rejoice about .

Being part of Christ's ministry is reason to rejoice with trembling.
When you share the truth and love of Christ with others
as opportunities come about,you are truly serving the Lord with reverence.

You are the light that Jesus Christ called you to be in
this darkening world. Jesus proclaimed :

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that
they may see your good works, and glorify your
Father which is in heaven.

As the world darkens with increased sinful activity
your heart filled with Christ light
will only shine brighter...so trust in Him,stay
the course, finish the race with the gift God
gave you of true faith and rejoice !

Does God keep an eye on us ?

Behold, the eye of the LORD is toward them that fear Him,
toward them that wait for His mercy;Psalm 33:18

Who is a shield to those that fear Him ?

It is written : Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD:
he is their help and their shield.
Psalm 115:11

Who does the Lord take pleasure in ?

The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him,
in those that hope in his mercy.
Psalm 147:11

What is it to really rejoice with trembling ?

When Paul's eyes opened from knowing our Saviour - he rejoiced with a fear and trembling
that was not only spiritually healthy but a well-spring of motivation
for him to be a bold and faithful servant of God.

From Phillipians 2:12-18

12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my
presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out
your own salvation with fear and trembling.

*13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will
and to do of his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke,
in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among
whom ye shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have
not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. 17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice
and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice
with you all. 18 For the same cause also do ye joy,
and rejoice with me.

We have a great reminder in verse 13 which tells
us that God is with us . We are never alone in our labors for Him .
Our full duty is complete because greater is He who dwells within us allowing us
to bring forth good fruit as also declared by Jesus
in John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth
forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

With 2011 around the corner , may all those who are called to be lights
in this world for Jesus Christ ,shine bright , rejoice and honor God in the ways He has
made known to us . May we humbly and thankfully reflect upon the spiritual truth
spoken by Mary as written in Luke 1:50 And his mercy is on them
that fear him from generation to generation.

May God richly bless all of you with greater understanding
of His Word, Wisdom and may your humble vocation in Christ be
abundantly fruitful.
