Luke 12:4-5. We are a people divinely instructed to fear the Lord. God has opened our eyes to His Holiness, His glory, and our own failure to honor and give Him thanks. He has instructed us of the infinite punishment we rightly deserve, yet He has also revealed to us the Savior who came to rescue sinners. Therefore, because we know the fear of the Lord, we persuade others! Being a Christian results in a particular lifestyle, and gathering with God’s people in corporate fellowship is more than just something we do, it is who we are! Therefore, we will meet together as scripture commands.
