The only way you're going to reach places you've never gone is if you trust God's direction to do things you've never done.
Whoever fear God, shall find favour.
To fear is to have more faith in your antagonist than in Christ.
Faith can be as terrifying as it is reassuring.
Fear of the lord makes a person a medieval idiot, nothing more. If you must be afraid of something, then be afraid of turning into a hateful bigot. Be afraid of being a blind follower to dogmas. Be afraid to become a deluded monster beneath the skin of a human being.
