A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com
There are two kinds of fear. Everyone will experience one of those two types depending on whether you follow God's precepts. The first type of fear is reserved for those who have not follow His ways. That type of fear and trembling comes because of fear of punishment. It equates to the horror of what will befall those damned to eternal punishment. Those who choose their own path choose eternal separation from God. They choose to face the horror of eternity alone with no support, no love, no light, nothing. They will face eternity absorbed by the horror of complete isolation from their only source of hope, Jesus.
But for those who choose to follow Christ, there is another kind of fear. Seldom to you hear about that definition today, but His word uses the term “fear God” often. So what does it mean for those who follow Him? For that group, you do not fear punishment and the wrath those who follow their own way do. So what does it mean to fear God? It means to tremble in awe and reverence.
